[2013] EWCA Crim 2638

The judge had been right not to allow evidence of duress to go to the jury in a case where the defendant was charged with cheating at common law; even if it was true that the defendant had committed the offence because of threats and intimidation from a third party, he had ample opportunity to evade the threats by going to the police.

CA (Crim Div) (Elias LJ, Supperstone J, Jeremy Baker J)
