Judicial Discretion and Criminal Litigation

Synopsis

Surveying the discretions exercised by criminal trial courts at both the Crown Court and Magistrates Court level and discretion in the criminal appellate process, this book provides a theoretical framework with which to assess discretions, examines the evidential and procedural discretions whose existence is recorded in cases, statutes, and the reports of law reform bodies, and lists the known principles by which these discretions should be exercised.
