212e SAIT 1TINCENT,_TUESDAY, 10 JULY, 1962.-(No. 38.)


IN THE BRITISH CARIBBEAN
COURT OF APPEAL

APPELLATE JURISDICTION
CRIMINAL

Territory: ST. VINCENT.

ON APPEAL FROM THE SUPREME
COURT OF ST. VINCENT

CRIMINAL APPEAL NO. 1 OF 1962

REGINA
vs.
CHARLES CREESE

BEFORE:
The Honourable Mr. Justice Archer
,, Mr. Justice Wylie
Mr. Justice Marnan

19th June, 1962.

Mr. E. F. Adams for the Applicant.
Mr. William Macintyre, Attorney Gen-
eral, for the Crown.

JUDGMENT OF THE COURT
DELIVERED BY
SMR. JUSTICE MARNAN.

This is an application for leave to
appeal by Charles Creese who was con-
victed on the 14th March of this year
of shooting at a man called Alfred
Culzac with intent to do him grievous
bodily harm. The indictment con-
tained another count relating to the
same incident which charged Creese
with shooting at Culzac with intent to
murder him. Upon that count the jury
returned a verdict of not guilty but
found the appellant guilty of the of-
fence of shooting with intent to cause
grievous bodily harm. This Court
wishes to make it quite clear that it is
with that conviction, and that convic-
tion only, which it is now concerned,
and the Court expressly refrains from
making any comment upon the merits
of the case as a whole.
The application for leave to appeal
contained four grounds to which it is
now unnecessary to refer by virtue of
the fact that on the 16th June, that is
to say three days ago, a further appli-
cation was filed asking for leave to
argue additional grounds of appeal.
The Court has read all the papers and
fully considered all the facts in this
case but having granted to counsel for
the appellant the leave he sought this


morning, to rely upon the additional
grounds of appeal, the Court's atten-
tion was at once arrested by the third
ground. By that third ground it was
contended that having regard to evi-
dence which was given at the trial to
the effect that the appellant had been
previously convicted of threatening to
shoot Mr. Culzac the jury should have
been then and there discharged. To that
ground of appeal the Court found diffi-
culty in divining an answer. Accord-
ingly it seemed both reasonable and
necessary to take the somewhat unusual
course of inviting learned counsel for
the appellant to develop that ground
and, having heard him, to invite the
Attorney General to reply. Nothing
which has been said in this Court this
morning has removed the view which
this Court took when considering the
ground based on admission of a previ-
ous conviction. That was a ground up-
on which leave to appeal must be
granted and which, as substantiated by
the record, must necessarily result in
the quashing of this conviction.
Indeed I need say no more than this.
The cases of Alexander Hemmingway
(8 Criminal Appeal Reports page 47
and Parker 45 Criminal Appeal Re-
ports page 1) afford all the legal sup-
port that Mr. Adams required for his
arguments.
In those circumstances the only mat-
ter which required further considera-
tion of the Court was as to the right
course to be adopted. It goes without
saying that, having heard the argument,
and coming to the conclusion that we
have, it was not necessary to consider
any of the other grounds of appeal. The
only question which has caused us to
hesitate is whether the order of this
Court should be for a new trial or for
this conviction to be quashed and the
sentence set aside. In considering that
matter the Court has had regard to the
course of practice indicated by the au-
thorities. It appears that very often
inadmissible evidence which requires
the quashing of conviction is admitted
in course of trial not as a result of any
intention but by some matter of inad-
vertence such as the unexpected answer
given by a witness to a perfectly proper
question. In such cases this Court has
sometimes ordered a new trial. That
however was not the situation in the
present case. The evidence was intro-
duced by the counsel for the Crown as
among the first pieces of evidence he
sought to elicit from his first witness.
It appears that the evidence was
promptly objected to, and legal argu-
ment ensued. The learned trial Judge
upheld the contention of the Crown
that the evidence was admissible, and













SAINT VINCENT, TUESDAY, 10 JULY, 1962.-(No. 38.) 213


overruled the objection of counsel for
the defence. It follows from what I
have already said that he was clearly
wrong in law to have so decided, but
the fact was that he not only admitted
the evidence but permitted it to remain
in minds of the jury. There can there-
fore be no question of inadvertence or
mistake as the cause of the introduction
of this piece of evidence, and in those
circumstances this Court has come to
the conclusion that the present convic-
tion cannot stand. The matter came be-
fore the Court this morning still in the
form of an application for leave to ap-
peal. In those circumstances the order
of this Court is: Application for leave
to appeal is granted and the applica-
tion treated as substantive appeal. The
conviction must be quashed and sen-
tence set aside.

Dated this 19th day of June, 1962.
C. V. H. ARCHER,
Justice of Appeal.

C. WYLIE,
Justice of Appeal.

J. F. MARNAN,
Justice of Appeal.
