[2002] EWCA Crim 747

In a prosecution under s.2(1) Obscene Publications Act 1959 a jury was only required to be satisfied that there was a likelihood of vulnerable persons seeing the obscene material. The prosecution did not have to demonstrate that such a person actually did or would see it. The conviction in this instance did not violate the defendant's right to freedom of expression under Art.10 European Convention on Human Rights. * Leave to appeal to the House of Lords refused.
