A more than two year investigation into an alleged offence from twenty three years ago.  That's something.

We had a 74 year old in jail in 2017. His charges were two counts of Rape from 1974. Not sexual assault. Rape. Got four years.

Probably had to start with a fair bit of archival work to identify individuals and potential witnesses, followed by a lengthy process of tracking people down and getting statements. As a very cold case it would have probably been tackled intermittently as time allowed. I’m not that surprised by a 20 month investigation on something that old.

That fact that charges were laid is surprising and shows the degree of confidence they were able to build in the allegations.
