Practice and Procedure

R v H (2006)

PUBLISHED April 26, 2006

There was no reason to interfere with the conviction and sentence of a teenage boy in relation to four counts of rape of a very young boy. Despite inconsistencies between the differing accounts of the victim and two young witnesses the trial judge had been entitled to conclude that it was for the jury to consider the victim's reliability as a witness.
