[2007] EWCA Crim 597

A judge had been correct to allow details relating to a charge of rape, for which the defendant had been acquitted, to be adduced at the re-trial for a different charge on the same indictment, as the information was important background information relating to consent. The fact that the acquittal itself did not go before the jury had not rendered the conviction unsafe.

CA (Crim Div) (May LJ, Forbes J, Judge Findlay Baker QC)
