ADMISSIBILITY AND NEED FOR APPLICATION UNDER CRIMINAL JUSTICE ACT 2003

[2009] EWCA Crim 2504 [2009] EWCA Crim 2504

Evidence of an assertion that a defence witness had disclosed having been sexually abused by the defendant did not amount to bad-character evidence and there was therefore no requirement for the prosecution to make an application to adduce it under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.101.
