Records of trial

I’m having a problem with some appellate cases.

The charges are referred, trial sessions are held, for one reason or another the charges are withdrawn, and then they come back.

When the ROT is prepared the earlier hearings are not part of the ROT, why not?

One of these days a CCA is going to agree with me that the ROT is not “complete” and that they cannot affirm a sentence beyond that applicable to a SPCM.
