Family judge who blamed (alleged) victim in (alleged) rape case steps down

Our thanks to Sally for this. An extract:

Tolson’s judgment in a case involving a contact order for a child garnered national media coverage at the beginning of the year when he incorrectly told a mother who had said she had been raped, that the assault by her abusive husband hadn’t constituted rape because she had not fought back.

The term “victim” should of course be replaced with “alleged victim”, and “rape” with “alleged rape”, throughout the article, as well as in the headline. Otherwise the husband is considered guilty until proven innocent, which will almost always be an impossibility. There are hundreds if not thousands of men in British prisons as a result of false rape allegations.
