Policeman's rape charge dropped
A police officer accused of rape has had the charge dropped.
Court proceedings against Sgt Carl Woodall were discontinued following advice from the Crown Prosecution Service, Sussex Police said.
The 45-year-old officer had been on conditional bail ahead of a scheduled court hearing on 13 December.
Sgt Woodall was suspended from his post in Eastbourne pending the outcome of his case, but he is now believed to have been reinstated.
What the fuck does it mean?
