Criminal evidence and procedure - Evidence - Character of accused - Evidence tending to show co-accused's bad character - Cut-throat defence - Effect of character directions on defence case - Safety of conviction.
The defendant's conviction for murder was safe in case where he ran a cut-throat defence against his co-defendant because the judge had rightly directed the jury that the co-defendant's previous conviction for manslaughter was relevant to the defendant's defence but not to the prosecution's case against the co-defendant.
