    I know that sexual infidelity is excluded as a qualifying trigger for loss of control (exclduing the case of Clinton )

    but what if the victim only lied about sexual infidelity e.g. 'You're not the father' but he really is

    My lecturer keeps putting situations like this in exam questions and I never know what to write!:confused:

    Please help, thanks

    Presumably it would come down to what the person who lost control believed to be true, rather than what was actually true? There must be a case on this point, surely?

    I don't think it can since it's still perceived sexual infidelity that caused the defendant to act as he did.
    Anything relating to sexual infidelity should be disregarded according to R v Clinton so S.55(6)(a) still applies.

    Do you know a case? I can't find one.
