R v Allen

[1988] Crim LR 698

Case summary last updated at 15/01/2020 07:42 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case R v Allen

A was charged with indecent assault. In defence he claimed that he had 1) not realised how high the alcohol content was of is drink so that he was not to blame for his drunkenness, and 2) that his drunkenness excused his action. The court ruled that the trial judge had been right not to leave the 2nd argument with the jury (Majewski makes it an unacceptable line of argument), while he was responsible to know exactly what he was drinking.
