R v W (2011)

PUBLISHED May 5, 2011

[2011] EWCA Crim 1142

The court quashed a conviction for rape and assault by penetration in light of several material deficiencies in the re-trial judge's directions to the jury concerning the defendant's case and her failure to remind them of the defence following her decision to allow them to replay the complainant's video evidence.
