Case Ref. 44LN0184518 REGINA V DEAN RENSHAW
Court: Isle of Wight, Magistrates Court
CPS Prosecutor Ann Smout
In the above case, the Prosecutor for the CPS confirmed that the Defendant could be either a living man or a legal fiction and that having raised the action they were required to identify the Defendant, in this case they identified the living man as the Defendant.
This information was also confirmed by the Clerk of the Court and the Magistrates; the case was then adjourned to the 7th February 2019.
The failure to identify the Defendant would have confirmed that there was no case to answer.
