The Director of Public Prosecutions has defended the decision to prosecute former Common's deputy speaker Nigel Evans over a string of sex offences charges, saying victims of sex crimes do not always consider themselves victims.
Victims themselves may not always think of themselves as victims, it rather depends on the relationship they are in with their alleged abusers.
So if someone is in a position of power, or perhaps we have seen it in grooming cases where victims think they are not victims because their abusers love them and take care of them.
So I think we should be very careful just to say 'people don't think they are victims and therefore they are not'."
After spending almost a year with sex crime allegations hanging over him, Nigel Evans says "nothing will ever be the same".
Nigel Evans' career reached one of the highest political positions in the country, before he was forced to defend himself in court.
Lancashire MP Nigel Evans has been cross-examined over allegations that he sexually abused seven young men.
