R v BRIAN M (2007)

PUBLISHED April 20, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 1182

Although a complainant had delayed for over three years from the date of two offences of rape before bringing the matter to the attention of the police, there had not been prejudice to a defendant, since he had been well able to provide a defence to the allegations against him.
