REGINA VS. ALEX HEPBURN - APPEAL AGAINST CONVICTION.
On the 12th April 2019, Alex Hepburn was convicted, at Worcester Crown Court, of an offence of rape by oral penetration. Whilst we did not represent Mr. Hepburn at trial, our Mr. Draycott was instructed to offer him advice and assistance in relation to an appeal against conviction. An application for permission to appeal was lodged and on the 30th January 2020 confirmation was received from the Court of Appeal to the effect that the application had been granted. As there will be a full hearing of this case (on a date to be fixed in due course) no further detailed observations will be made at this stage.
