Practice and Procedure

R v D (2005)

PUBLISHED December 19, 2005

There might be occasions, in which a sexual offences prevention order under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 s.104 was made to protect a child of a defendant, where the family court's jurisdiction should be reflected in the order because of the additional flexibility it provided. In the circumstances a s.104 order was varied to provide that a father, who had abused his daughter, was prohibited from seeing his son only until the son reached the age of 16.
