“Where specimen counts were charged but complainants described in their evidence particular incidents, the trial judge should direct the jury of the necessity to be sure that the offence had been committed on the same occasion, either on an occasion in the course of the unspecified pattern of offending, or on one of the particular occasions identified in the evidence.”
