Rethinking double jeopardy: Justice and finality in criminal process.
CRIM LAW REV
933 - 951.
A recent Law Commission Consultation Paper has reconsidered the double jeopardy rule. The Paper recommends, inter alia, the enactment of a new exception to the rule to allow for a ri trial where significant new evidence of guilt emerges after acquittal. This article reviews the Commission's proposals and finds them justified, but argues that there is a need to rethink some of the details of the proposed exception.
