R v ROBERT K (2008)

PUBLISHED July 22, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 1923

A judge had not erred, and there was no duplicity, in allowing an amendment to a count in an indictment that had initially alleged rape by vaginal penetration so as to allege that the defendant had raped the victim by penetration either vaginally or anally.
