Criminal law – Trial. The defendant, who had been sole attorney for her father under a Lasting Power of Attorney, was charged with fraud in respect of dealings with her father's money. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, considered an application by the prosecution under s 58 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003, in circumstances where the proceedings had been stayed on that count where the judge had held that it would be an abuse of process to continue in the absence of further particulars. The court held that the indictment had been sufficient and ordered the proceedings to resume.
