[2001] EWCA Crim 468

A conviction for an offence of rape was regarded by the Court of Appeal as unsafe in the exceptional circumstances where comments made to the jury by defence counsel at the trial damaged the appellant's case. Accordingly, following receipt of a letter from prosecuting counsel detailing the contents of defence counsel's comments, the Court of Appeal was left with the view that the conviction had to be quashed.
