Criminal law Trial. Court of Appeal, Criminal Division: The decision by a jury of 11 to convict the defendant of numerous sexual offences was not unsafe on the grounds that either a juror, other than the one which was discharged, should have been discharged by reason of the fact that she might, in the light of her circumstances, have found it difficult to remain impartial, or that the whole jury should have been discharged in consequence of the behaviour of the juror who was in fact discharged, namely, her decision, in the middle of deliberations, not to participate in further discussion with other jurors.
