Rape and conviction rates - Jane’s story
Pips Taylor investigates what happens when a rape case gets to court. She talks to Jane, who was raped by her friend’s boyfriend. Jane reported the rape and the Crown Prosecution Service took the case to trial where it was heard in a Crown Court in front of a judge and jury. Jane explains how she felt about the behaviour of the jury during the trial and Alison Saunders from the CPS explains why jury acquittal is the largest single reason for cases not to succeed.
