PROSECUTORS have been told to doubt suspected rapists’ past passionate poise and their diagnosis of women in a bid to boost bad self-assurance rates.
Victims’ characters are infrequently questioned in justice and jurors will now also hear some-more about purported attackers’.
Evidence such as prior determining or forceful poise against ex-girlfriends and their comments on social media may be considered.
Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders announced the move.
She told London’s Evening Standard that meaningful some-more about the suspect’s credentials was crucial.
It comes after a fibre of high-profile cases finished in acquittal, with men convincing juries the sex was consensual.
