Practice and Procedure

R V UGWUCHI (1990)

PUBLISHED March 23, 1990

A crown court having refused an application for legal aid had power to question the defendant but should not have proceeded to pass sentence when the defendant was not legally represented. On an appeal that irregularity became irrelevant as there was power to review the whole matter under s.11(3) Criminal Appeal Act 1968.
