R v E (2011)

PUBLISHED October 20, 2011

[2011] EWCA Crim 2620

A decision to admit historical evidence of sexual offences in a trial for buggery and indecent assault, concerning the same offender, given the considerable passage of time since the earlier incidents, was not unjust or unfair as the offender had provided a detailed response to the historic evidence.
