The Court of Appeal has today handed down judgment quashing convictions in S , B and C where fresh medical evidence undermined the safety of their convictions . This case demonstrates the importance of challenging medical evidence and and the willingness of the Court of Appeal to receive such evidence which undermines the safety of convictions obtained on such evidence .
Mark Newby from QualitySolicitors Jordans has delivered another quashed conviction following the decision of the Court of Appeal on 21st June .
In R v X [ 2012 ] The Court accepted that the directions given in the case did not adequately protect the applicant and his trial was unfair as a result . A re-trial has been ordered which means nothing can be published to identify the case .
QualitySolicitors Jordans with the considerable assistance of Mark Barlow Counsel of Garden Court North Chambers have taken a major step forward in seeking to challenge unfairness to those who are or alleged to have a different sexual orientation in the Criminal Justice System .
Permission has been given to pursue an appeal refused by both the Single Judge and the Criminal Cases Review Commission . The Full Appeal will be heard at a later date .
