Regina v B and Others – Times Law Reports

Regina v B and Others

Court of Appeal

“Where one of several defendants in the same criminal proceedings became mentally unfit to stand trial before a jury had been empanelled, there was nothing in principle to prevent the jury subsequently hearing the trial of all the defendants, although in the case of the unfit defendant the jury would now be looking only to whether he had committed the actus reus of the relevant offence.”

R v B and others: [2008] WLR (D) 296

“Where one of several defendants in the same criminal proceedings became unfit to stand trial before a jury had been empanelled there was nothing in principle to prevent a single empanelled jury subsequently proceeding to hear the trial of all the defendants, although in the case of the unfit defendant the jury would now be looking to the question whether he had committed the actus reus of the relevant offence.”
