R -v- C, Snaresbrook Crown Court, Sexual Assault, 2015

About

This case involved allegations of serious sexual offences against a minor. They were historic offences, alleged to have occurred nearly 20 years prior to the Defendant's arrest.
The first trial resulted in a hung jury.  During the first trial evidence was revealed that documented dreams the Complainant had through her childhood.  Some of the dreams were of a sexual and violent nature. This raised the concern that allegations may have been imagined and inaccurate.  This was a unique set of circumstances which required specialist expertise. We were able to identify the issue immediately and decided to instruct an expert in Recovered Memory Syndrome.

Result

The Crown Prosecution Service withdrew the charges before the trial commenced.
