When does ‘sub judice’ kick in?

On the BBC Radio 4 news at Six O’clock last night (16 Sept), the newsreader announced:

‘A 31-year old trader with the Swiss bank UBS has appeared in court, charged in connection with the loss of more than £1 billion.’

Have a listen to the report from Business Editor Robert Peston. Would you have reported all the details he includes?
