17-05-2012 18:38

The Crown's case against Judith Sambrook for refusing to complete the 2011 Census was formally dismissed at Shrewsbury Magistrates Court this morning. The CPS offered no evidence against Judith and she was therefore found not guilty. This is the first not guilty verdict we're aware of in relation to 2011 Census refusers. Two cases have been very recently dropped (discontinued) by the CPS, but others are continuing and only this week Deborah Glass Woodin of Oxford was found guilty of the same offence at Reading Magistrates Court.

Census refuser case dropped: Press Release from John Marjoram

14-05-2012 16:28

John Marjoram was prosecuted for failing to complete the 2011 Census. His trial was set for the end of this month in Bristol, but the Crown Prosecution Service suddenly decided that it didn't have enough evidence to "provide a realistic prospect of conviction." It has likewise dropped the case against John Voysey, which had been linked with John Marjoram's case but had latterly been referred back to Wrexham Magistrates. Other census court cases are still going ahead with some hearings taking place this week.
