R v AM (2006)

PUBLISHED October 17, 2006

[2006] EWCA Crim 3038

Convictions for rape, attempted rape and indecent assault were quashed where the judge had shown bias towards the Crown case, had given inadequate jury directions and had erred in ruling that there was sufficient evidence to go to the jury on two of the counts.
