Evidence of Bad Character, along with Hearsay evidence, has been more widely admissible since the statutory provisions of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 came into force and, as with hearsay, it helps to have an introduction, or refresher for those who have been doing other things for a while, as well as looking the key case and some appeal cases to see how the legislation works through in practice.

This presentation aims to do two things: review the key relevant provisions of the CJA 2003, and second look at some cases which have applied those provisions.

Evidence of bad character remains a frequent issue in criminal proceeding and it is important to have a working knowledge of this area of the law.

The key legislation are sections 98 to 113 of the Criminal Justice Act 2003.
