Criminal evidence - Police interview - Transcripts
Criminal evidence Police interview. The defendant's trial for sexual offences had been unfair and the safety of his convictions undermined by the mistaken leaving of transcripts of the complainant's police interviews in the jury room. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in allowing the defendant's appeal, approached the difficulty by considering: (i) the defence approach to the problem; (ii) whether that had amounted to an agreement that the jury should have the transcripts during retirement; (iii) the judge's warnings and their sufficiency; and (iv) the safety of the convictions.
