R v WILLIAM LUCAS BATCHELOR (2013)
PUBLISHED November 29, 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.
