R v Grout [2011]


  • The defendant was charged with both causing and inciting sexual activity with a child, as two separate counts
  • The defendant, via webcam, had asked the 12-year-old victim to show him her bra; she had lifted her t-shirt, revealing her bra strap


  • Was the conviction safe?


  • No, conviction quashed


  • The judge had failed to break down the two counts adequately, misdirecting the jury
  • Sexual conversation, in theory, can constitute a cause or incitement of sexual activity
