Case details

R v Sally Lane and John Letts (AB and CD) (Appellants)

Anonymity Order

Please be aware that there is an anonymity order on this case:

Section 37 of the Criminal Procedure and Investigations Act 1996 imposes statutory reporting restrictions in relation to the hearing of interlocutory appeals such as the present. The objective is to ensure that the jury's consideration of the evidence and issues put before it is not at risk of being affected by prior reporting, for example of the details of the allegations or of discussion of possible issues. Those restrictions apply to the hearing of this appeal. Until the conclusion of any trial (depending on the outcome of the appeal), nothing may be reported except the following:

  1. the identity of the court(s) and the name of the judge(s);
  2. the names, ages, home addresses and occupations of the accused and witnesses;
  3. the offences charged, as summarised in this judgment;
  4. the names of counsel and solicitors engaged in the appeal;
  5. whether for the purposes of the appeal representation was provided to either of the accused under Part 1 of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012; and
  6. this judgment.

Please note that the anonymity order above differs from that made by Lady Hale at the start of the case.
