[2007] EWCA Crim 2165

The judge had not erred in sentencing the defendant for possessing without reasonable excuse a false identity document, contrary to the Identity Cards Act 2006 s.25(5), on the basis that no innocent purpose was alleged, and in drawing the commonsense conclusion that there was a sinister reason for its possession, even though the defendant was not charged with the distinct offence of having an identity card in his possession with intent to use it in order to establish a registrable fact, contrary to s.25(1) of the Act.
