[2009] EWCA Crim 2117

Convictions on alternative counts of indecent assault, which depended on sexual intercourse being the indecent act and which were added to a rape indictment more than 12 months after the alleged offences had taken place, circumvented the effect of the Sexual Offences Act 1956 Sch.2 para.10(a) in relation to the time limits for commencement of proceedings under s.6 of the Act and were quashed as an abuse of process.

CA (Crim Div) (Elias LJ, Simon J, Coulson J)
