Ex-accused on track

Nick Wills' law degree cost more than the usual blood, sweat and tears. Nearly three years ago his legal future was nearly destroyed by a fellow student's false accusation of rape. Yesterday he was back in court but the outlook was not nearly as grim. Mr Wills was admitted as a barrister and solicitor of the High Court. A friend and mentor, Hamilton lawyer Warren Scotter, was by his former client's side and moved his admission to the Bar. Mr Wills was a 22-year-old science graduate embarking on his second degree at Waikato University when he was accused of a brutal rape in 1995.
