R v G (2010)

PUBLISHED July 19, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 1693

The aim of the Sexual Offences Act 2003 s.15(1) was to penalise those who used a relationship which they had developed as a platform from which to launch sexual offending. In the instant case, there was more than a substantial body of evidence corroborating the complainant child's version of events which justified the jury reaching the conclusion that the offender had arranged to meet her for the purposes of a sexual assault.
