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

Judgement for the case R v Parker

A man was v. angry and smashed a telephone belonging to the Post Office, thus breaking it. The question came down to whether he was reckless. P claimed the judge offered an objective test (it wasn’t really clear either way). The CA claimed the judge’s assessment was fair and that the defendant knew what the consequences of his smashing the phone would be, rendering him reckless. Appeal Dismissed.
