Regina v Gul (Hamesh): [2012] EWCA Crim 1761;  [2012] WLR (D)  245

“Where a defendant was sent for trial to the Crown Court on an indictable only offence but no such offence was included in the indictment when it was signed and the procedure to determine mode of trial was not followed such non-compliance with those procedural requirements would not result in the proceedings being a nullity where the defendant was able to cure any defect in the process by making an appropriate application to the judge at the time.”
