R -v- E, Chelmsford Crown Court, Burglary, 2016


This was a serious burglary which involved the theft of numerous goods including high value antiques. The Defendant admitted the offence in interview when he was unrepresented at the police station.

The Defence submitted a legal argument to have the interview excluded on the basis that the confession was unfairly obtained by the police.


The CPS discontinued the case shortly before the commencement of the trial and the Defendant was found not guilty.
