Regina v Grout – WLR Daily

Posted March 4th, 2011 in children, drafting, indictments, law reports, sexual offences by sally
“Care had to be taken when drafting a count in an indictment alleging an offence contrary to section 8(1) of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 because that section created at least two separate offences: (i) causing a child under 13 to engage in sexual activity and (ii) inciting a child under 13 to engage in a sexual activity.”
