R v UM (2007)

PUBLISHED December 18, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 3462

A judge's decision had not exceeded the bounds of a reasonable conclusion where he had determined not to discharge a jury that had learned during its deliberations of information that had not been in evidence during the trial, which was prejudicial to the defendant's case, and which might have influenced the jury's thinking.
