Abstract: »The year was 1963. Mr and Ms P had married in the previous spring, and on the second-to-last weekend in March they were expecting their first child. By the end of the second weekend in April, they were a family of three. The child grew. The seasons changed. The years went on. Man landed on the moon, invented the World Wide Web, and decoded the human genome; nearly five decades passed. And then, one day in 2009, Ms P succeeded in having the police pursue her claim that Mr P had raped her twice, all those years ago, on those weekends in 1963.« (Source: Adelaide Law Review)
