Practice and Procedure

R v DANNY DOYLE (2010)

PUBLISHED January 22, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 119

A conviction for rape was safe where the judge had used the term "submission" in juxtaposition to, and in comparison with, the exercise of free choice in order to differentiate between the two concepts, and the jury could not have taken submission to mean anything other than the absence of free consent.
