Scrap trial summing up
9:00am Friday 1st November 2013 in News
Summing up began yesterday in the trial of five men accused of attempting to conceal, disguise or convert criminal property.
The six-week trial at Oxford Crown Court has concerned employees of TR Rogers and Sons, in Nuneham Courtenay, who are alleged to have “turned a blind eye” to two undercover police officers posing as metal thieves.
The prosecution has accused them of accepting “suspicious” metal cables and lead from the officers between March and May last year.
Judge Ian Pringle is expected to finish summing up the evidence in the case today, when the jury will retire to consider its verdict.
Simon Rogers, 42, of Bromsgrove in Faringdon, his father Terence Rogers, 70, of Drayton St Leonard, Martin Pace, 36, of Wallingford, Ian Marshall, 29, of Berinsfield, and Darren Andrews, 34, of Berinsfield, all deny attempting to conceal, disguise or convert criminal property.
