R v PAUL M (2009)

PUBLISHED November 13, 2009

[2009] EWCA Crim 2504

Evidence of an assertion that a defence witness had disclosed having been sexually abused by the defendant did not amount to bad-character evidence and there was therefore no requirement for the prosecution to make an application to adduce it under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.101.
