Magistrates Court Cases

R v F

Defended at trial for an offence of failing to provide a blood specimen. The defendant asserted that he had a phobia of needles which meant that he was unable to provide a specimen of blood at the police station.

R v H 

Defended in trial for one charge of driving a vehicle whilst the proportion of a controlled substance was above the prescribed limit. The trial issue was procedural. The client’s case was that two separate specimens of blood were taken at the police station, as opposed to one sample being split into two in line with s.15 RTOA 1988, thus making the sample inadmissible. The client was acquitted.
