Number of Acquittals in Court Cases Increases Greatly
The Council for the Administration of Justice has found that there has been a steep increase in the number of acquittals in criminal cases since September 2005, when there was a Parliamentary debate about a misjudgment in a murder case and the wrong person was found guilty. Until then the rate acquittals had been stable at about 4%. This has now risen to 7%. Other possible reasons for the increase in acquittals include a decline in the quality of detective work.
