The case was heard at Llwynypia Magistrates court on July 27th 2005 and the defendant's name was Douglas Shilton. The case number ***** ***** and the case was heard before circuit court judge Christine Seward. The case was dismissed and the defendant found not guilty.
The only information I have is that Christine Seward is a "circuit judge"
I have no role in this particular case but information about the case was given to me when I was defending myself on a speeding charge. The case was discontinued by the CPS due to the lack of evidence. I would like to get to the bottom as to why that occured. I have tried long and hard to find this information but everybody I have spoken to seems reluctant to give me the information I seek.
Am I correct that this ruling must form part of criminal law and as such should be in the public domain?
I do not need it to defend myself. I feel you are heading down the road of trying to fob me off, as I have been, by every other avenue I have taken trying to get this information.
Surely the reasoning behind every criminal court case must be recorded as case law in order that lawyers can research and reflect and if necessary use it, whether it be for defence or prosecution purposes.
Are you able to obtain this information?
