THE QUEEN

v.

STEPHEN JOHN MELLISH

(Appellant)

JUDGMENT

MR. JUSTICE D.M. CAMPBELL: In this case the Crown concedes that the appellant has been wrongly convicted on his own confession of the charge of wilfully and unlawfully damaging property, and therefore the sentence of three months' imprisonment imposed by the Magistrate will be set aside. Leave will be granted to extend the time for appealing, and the conviction will be quashed and the sentence set aside.

MR. JUSTICE HOARE: I agree.

MR. JUSTICE KNEIPP: I agree.
