Please refresh the and retry. In at least 58 killings of women in the UK those responsible have stated in their defence that their victims consented to the extreme violence which led to their deaths. The cases include that of Natalie Connolly, whose millionaire boyfriends John Broadhurst was jailed for three years and eight months after the Crown Prosecution Service accepted his plea to a lesser charge of manslaughter by gross negligence. Harriet Harman, the Labour MP, was one of those who asked for the jail term to be reviewed but the request was refused as it was within the guidelines for the crime he had admitted.
Ms Harman has proposed an amendment to the Domestic Violence Bill to ban the use of consent as a defence. She, of course, is not there to say otherwise. Analysis of the cases in which the defence in used shows that there were two not guilty verdicts, three cases in which charges were not pursued, 16 cases where a lesser manslaughter charge was accepted and one where a reduced sentence was given for murder because of the defence.
A t least 20 of the men had ly been accused of violence against women including rape, attempted rape, kidnapping and assault.
