[2011] EWCA Crim 1649

A conviction for taking children from their mothers' control without lawful authority under the Child Abduction Act 1984 s.2(1)(a) was upheld where, at trial, since it could have been conceded that the children were deflected by the defendant from doing what they would, with parental consent, have otherwise been doing, counsel had been entitled to concede that the defendant had taken them from their mothers' lawful control.

CA (Crim Div) (Hooper LJ, Stadlen J, Sweeney J)
