    Hi there,
    I have completed a criminal law essay, which I mentioned in passing. The case involved the youngest women convicted of rape in 2001 - Claire Marsh.

    I have seen in the Telegraph article: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main...17/nrape17.xml that she and the others involved were to be sentenced by the Old Bailey in May of that year.

    What is my point?
    I cannot find the exact citation for the case, I have tried WestLaw, LexisNexis etc to see the full judgement.

    If someone can help me it would be much appreciated, especially if you can tell me how you found it as I am clearly doing something wrong!

    Oh my god that is possible the sickest thing I have ever read.

    Its possible its an unreported case, not every case makes it way onto Westlaw etc. In such circumstances you can cite the newspaper article instead I think.

    Ah thanks for the replies, yes I read that she received seven years too. Quite an astonishing case, I came across it by chance!
