[2001] EWCA Crim 1563

Where the judge had properly directed the jury on the relevance of the appellant's deception in order to facilitate sexual intercourse to the issue of consent, the conviction for rape was safe. However, the nine-year sentence imposed was manifestly excessive and was substituted with a term of eight years.

CA (Crim Div) (Waller LJ, Brown J, HH Judge Goddard)
