[Extract] The evidence is in: the mistake of fact excuse for rape needs reform
I have been searching the mistake of fact excuse in Queensland rape law for than 15 years. For the past two years, Bri Lee and I have been working together to deepen and expand my previous work on this topic.
We have found every recent (post -1990) Queensland appeal decision dealing with the excuse in rape and sexual assault cases. Our analysis of these cases formed the basis for a detailed report submitted tot he Attorney-General in March. The report is currently under peer review for publication in a scholarly journal.
