Case adjourned


Share post:

Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) Charles Leacock is to make a determination in the unprecedented case of two women from Britain categorically stating that the man charged with raping them is not their attacker.
When the preliminary enquiry continued yesterday at the Holetown Magistrates’ Court, Magistrate Barbara Cooke-Alleyne adjourned the case until December 13, pending advice from the DPP.
This happened after rape victim Diane Davies, who took the witness stand for the first time, told the court she was not proceeding with the matter because accused Derick Crawford was not the man who raped her.
The other victim, Dr Rachel Turner, 30, gave testimony in an earlier proceeding. (MB)
