Practice and Procedure

R v KJC (2012)

PUBLISHED July 5, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1669

A conviction for rape was safe, as the judge had been correct to refuse to allow the defendant to cross-examine the victim about an earlier incident involving her former husband having sexual intercourse with her while she was asleep. That incident had no relevance to the question of whether the victim had consented to sexual intercourse with the defendant.
