Reverse Your Verdict

(1971)
A collection of private prosecutions
A non fiction book by

 
 
Ever since the private prosecution in the Stephen Lawrence case, there has been renewed interest in cases brought by British citizens against the police or the state. Until 1968, any person could serve an indictment for any crime, subject to the proviso that the Crown could intervene when it pleased. This book details six successful attempts to reverse the verdicts of the courts - including two convictions for murder - and was written as part of a campaign to safeguard the right of private individuals to seek justice.
