Regina v Aldridge; Regina v Eaton [2012] EWCA Crim 1456; [2012] WLR (D) 196

“Although no provision had expressly been made for an appeal against a variation or refusal to vary a Sexual Offences Prevention Order, which was a clear legislative oversight, there was authority that a variation of such an order constituted “an order made by the court when dealing with an offender” falling within the broad context of section 50 of the Criminal Appeal Act 1968. That decision had not been decided per incuriam and was binding. When deciding these appeals the court had been sitting in the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, rather than the Court of Appeal, Civil Division.”
