Not following an ancient legal precedent could see many criminals re-trialled
One of the state’s leading criminal lawyers has backed a decision by the Court of Appeal which could see dozens of criminals get re-trialled.
The Court Of Appeal has found that at least one judge has not been following ancient legal precedent – by not parading jurors in front of the accused before a trial gets underway.
Criminal Lawyer Rob Stary spoke with Ross and John says the ‘parading’ of jurors is an important part of the legal process – because the accused has a right to be judged by a group of his or her ‘peers’.
