[2005] EWCA Crim 396

Where an appellant relied on honest belief that the victim to an indecent assault was willing to consent, whilst evidence of the victim's previous sexual behaviour was relevant to that belief the judge had a discretion whether to allow cross-examination and had to take into account whether refusal might render the conclusion of the jury unsafe.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Woolf LCJ, Davis J, Field J)
