Criminal evidence and procedure - Jury - Inconsistent verdicts - Verdicts not logically inconsistent.
In the circumstances of the instant case, where the defendant was convicted of offences of indecent assault, but acquitted in relation to graver sexual offences, all of which had arisen from the uncorroborated and unsupported evidence of the complainant, the verdicts were not logically inconsistent and there were no exceptional circumstances which rendered the convictions unsafe.
