Challenging the law on sexual history evidence : a response to Dent and Paul.

McGlynn, Clare (2018) 'Challenging the law on sexual history evidence : a response to Dent and Paul.', Criminal law review., 2018 (3). pp. 216-228.

Abstract

Responds to an article by N. Dent and S. Paul, "In defence of section 41", Crim. L.R. 2017, 8, 613-627, defending current policy on use of sexual history evidence in trials under the Youth Justice and Criminal Evidence Act 1999 s.41, with reference to R. v Evans (Chedwyn) (CA). Challenges their rejection of criticisms of the current regime, including that it may cause victim blaming and that Evans opens the floodgates to admitting such evidence.
