Perverting the Course of Justice

From the Crown Prosecution Service's website:

Perverting the Course of Justice
Offence: Indictable, Common Law
Relevant sentencing case law
concealing evidence - 4 months to 18 months, possibly longer if serious crime
Concealing evidence.
R v Francis-McGann [2003] 1 Cr. App. R. (S.) 14.

Speed camera case. Appellant was an army captain. He phoned the police to say that the vehicle had been exported, and subsequently sent a letter to the police. Convicted after trial. Sentence of three months imprisonment upheld.

No pressure on Kier Starmer, mind you ...
