R v T (2006)

PUBLISHED August 10, 2006

[2006] EWCA Crim 2006

A conviction for indecent assault was unsafe where evidence to show that the complainant had made truthful allegations of indecent assault against two other members of the family had been admitted simply to support the credibility of the complainant's allegations against the defendant. As a general principle, for evidence to be admissible as relevant it had to be logically probative of a fact in issue between the parties.
