R v NEIL SHARP (2012)

PUBLISHED November 20, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 3077

A conviction for indecent assault was quashed where prejudicial witness evidence rendered the conviction unsafe. It was not appropriate to order a retrial owing to the antiquity of the proceedings and the defendant's old age and failing health.
