Practice and Procedure

R V C (2004)

PUBLISHED March 18, 2004

[2004] EWCA Crim 292

The appellant's conviction in 2002 of the rape of his wife in 1970 was not an abuse of process as a man could be properly convicted of raping his wife when the incident occurred before the decision of R v R (1992) 1 AC 599.
