R v P (2010)

PUBLISHED June 9, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 1296

Convictions for four sexual offences involving a child were unsafe as the judge, when summing up, had wrongly referred to a section of a statement that, by agreement between the prosecution and defence, had not been in evidence as it was highly prejudicial.
