Summary R v. Clarke Case
R v. Clarke
The police offered a reward for 1,000 pounds for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the murderers of two policemen and a pardon to such an informant if he was an accomplice. The plaintiff was arrested and while in custody gave information leading to the arrest of the wanted murderers and he gave evidence at trial which led to their conviction. He brought an action to claim the reward when the police authorities refused to give it to him and it was held that he was not entitled to receive the reward. Though he knew about the offer, he gave information to clear himself from a charge of murder not to earn the reward. He was therefore no better than one who was ignorant of the reward.
