Can my case be reported by the media?

Generally yes, although the press are not allowed to report any matter likely to identify the complainant in most proceedings concerning sexual offences. This restriction continues for the lifetime of the complainant, unless lifted by order of the court. Such an order would only be made in limited circumstances. The defendant, if over 18, can generally be identified unless this would lead to identification of the complainant, such as when they are husband and wife.
