Smith v Crown Prosecution Service: Admn 15 Nov 2005

The defendant appealed by way of case stated against a decision in his case where he was to be prosecuted for possession of a prohibited weapon, a sawn off shotgun. The court had failed to give him opportunity to make representations as required under the 1998 Act. After committal on an indictable only offence, the case had been redrafted as an either way offence.
