Ingram v HM Advocate

Criminal evidence and procedure – Circumstantial evidence – Identification evidence – Sufficiency of evidence. High Court of Justiciary: Refusing an appeal by an appellant who was convicted of charges of threatening or abusive behaviour and assault, despite the fact that the evidence of the alleged victim in each charge, his then partner, exonerated him of the charges, the court held that there was sufficient in the remaining circumstantial evidence to entitle the jury to conclude that the charges were established and the sheriff was correct to repel a submission of no case to answer.
