R v C (2012)

PUBLISHED July 6, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1478

In a trial concerning sexual offences committed against two children, the judge had misdirected the jury by explicitly inviting them to use the experts' opinion as to the truth of the allegations in reaching their conclusion. As a result the convictions were quashed and a retrial ordered.
