Practice and Procedure

R V C (1999)

PUBLISHED June 24, 1999

Due to the fact that the judge had failed to direct the jury on the issues of evidence and the victim's distress, the Court of Appeal could not be completely certain that the jury would have convicted the appellant of five counts of indecent assault had they received such a direction, and accordingly the conviction was quashed.
