AB v Crown Prosecution Service

Criminal law – Trial. The justices should have acceded to the appellant's submission of no case, applying the second limb of R v Galbraith ([1981] 2 All ER 1060), as the prosecution case had been insufficient to permit any reasonable and properly directed jury to convict the appellant of the robbery. Accordingly, the Divisional Court allowed the appellant's appeal by way of case stated and quashed the appellant's conviction.
