R v Dann

Criminal Law – Trial. The defendant contended that his plea of guilty had been obtained through improper pressure following a proposal by the prosecution to drop proceedings against two of his co-defendants, including his partner who was the mother of his two young children. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in dismissing the defendant's appeal, held that the plea had not been improperly induced and an application to vacate the plea had been rightly refused.
