[2013] EWCA Crim 1639

The circumstances in which a 15-year-old girl had been found in the company of a 20-year-old man were sufficient to enable a jury to infer that the man had detained her within the meaning of the Child Abduction Act 1984 s.2(1)(b). The fact that the man had previously been served with a warning notice in respect of an identical offence in relation to the same girl was relevant, probative and admissible.
