[2011] EWCA Crim 1414

A judge had erred in permitting in a rape trial the admission of two previous convictions for rape and attempted rape where the lapse of time between the commission of the previous offences and the instant offence was 32 years and 18 years respectively. The previous convictions were too old to satisfy the requirements of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.101(4) and s.103(3).
