Regina v Nelson (Gary) [2013] WLR (D) 10

“An allegation of assault by beating did not amount to or include, whether expressly or by implication, an allegation of common assault. It would not, therefore, be open to a jury to acquit a defendant of assault by beating but to convict him of common assault, unless the offence of common assault was charged as a separate count in the indictment.”
