Practice and Procedure

R v (1) A (2) B (2012)

PUBLISHED October 8, 2012

[2012] NICA 41

A jury had not acted inconsistently in finding two young offenders guilty of oral rape but not guilty of sexual assault, even though the charges represented a sequence of events over the course of a 30-minute period and the central issue was consent. On the evidence, there was no logical inconsistency in the verdicts.
