The New Edition of Rook and Ward on Sexual Offences and has just been issued and includes a New Chapter on Historical Sexual Offences . The authors are commended for giving this complex and difficult area its first official treatment . The Chapter starts with a quote from Mark Barlow and Mark Newby [ Solicitor Advocate as QS Jordans ] about the need for overall fairness and then discusses a series of cases of the issues of Historic Cases . Some of the cases featured which are QS Jordans cases include :
- R v Sheikh
- R v Robson
- R v Joynson
- R v Mackreth
Its to be hoped that the Judiciary who administer fairness in the Crown Court will pay head to the careful and thoughtful guidance which is offered in this text on the treatment of such cases .
