Update 01 Prejudicial vs Probative

Yesterday I posted about the rape conviction based upon evidence given by a four year old child, see Prejudicial vs Probative.

The Telegraph tells us that, "Boyfriend of Baby P's mother to appeal rape conviction giving as one the bases for the appeal,

"[t]hey [the lawyers]are expected to argue – as they did during the trial – that the victim was too young and unreliable to be a credible or competent witness."

This was the point that I was making in my comment.
Update - 24th November 2009 ... "Man jailed over Baby P challenging rape conviction. Expect the conviction to be overturned.
