Practice and Procedure

R v PR (2000)

PUBLISHED November 28, 2000

Where an allegation of rape was non-justiciable, the judge had a discretion to admit the evidence as similar fact or background evidence in relation to other sexual offence charges. Careful consideration was required however and, if admitted, careful directions would be required from the judge.
