R v S (2008)

PUBLISHED February 6, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 346

Although there was evidence of a common assault by the defendant upon the complainant, there was no evidence that that offence was committed with an intention to commit a sexual offence where the defendant had been acquitted of sexual offences. His conviction was inconsistent with those acquittals and would accordingly be quashed.
