Criminal evidence and procedure - Evidence - Admissibility - Possession of deactivated firearm - Prejudicial effect.
Where a defendant had been convicted of attempted robbery and possession of a firearm, the judge had been correct to allow the prosecution to adduce evidence of a deactivated firearm that had been in the defendant's possession. The prosecution had adduced the evidence to show that the defendant had lied about his involvement with guns, and the jury had been directed that possession of the gun was not a crime, and that it had not been used in the attempted robbery.
