Christopher-Patrick Walters

Years in prison:
Year of crime:
Year conviction was overturned:

Christopher-Patrick Walters was convicted of the rape of a friend of his sisters. On appeal, evidence was introduced to suggest that the alleged victim had not been “out of it” on drink as she claimed and that no evidence supported her assertion that she had been slipped a date rape drug. Press reports suggested pressure on prosecution lawyers to explain how a case based on such flimsy evidence could have come to court.
