R v Devonald: Consent and the "purpose" of the defendant.
Journal of Criminal Law
280 - 282.
I argued that the Court of Appeal in R v Devonald erred in holding that a secret plan by the defendant could vitiate the consent of another to a sexual encounter. This should only be correct when the victim is deceived into not understanding that the defendant had a sexual motive, which was not the case here.
