R v MH (2011)

PUBLISHED February 1, 2011

[2011] EWCA Crim 74

A trial judge was right to refuse an application, by an offender facing charges of indecent assault and rape, for a stay for abuse of process as there was no serious prejudice to the offender by the passage of time between the offences and when the complainant made the allegations.
