General defences

General defences could be described as ‘all or nothing’ defences.

Under our criminal justice system everyone is entitled to their day in court and to argue their defence.  There are a number of defences or general defences. This might include 'it was not me , it was someone else' or mistaken identity, or lack of evidence.  General defences are ‘all or nothing’ in the sense that if they if they are successful the defence leads to acquittal, if they are not accepted then the defendant is convicted.
