KH v HM Advocate

Criminal evidence – Rape – Sufficiency of evidence – Mutual corroboration. High Court of Justiciary: Allowing an appeal against conviction on two charges of rape, the court held that what was libelled in charge 5 of the indictment (a charge of assault), being neither an allegation of rape nor an allegation of conduct having any similarity to rape, was not available to corroborate what was libelled in the two charges of rape, and the appellant's conviction on those charges must be quashed.
