R (ON THE APPLICATION OF JE) v CRIMINAL INJURIES COMPENSATION APPEALS PANEL  EWCA Civ 234
The Applicant was refused compensation because the Criminal Injuries Appeals Panel decided that he had consent to the sexual activities on which his application was based. It was common ground that he was a “defective” who could not give consent under the Sexual Offences Act 1956. A “defective” under the 1956 Act was described as “a person suffering from a state of arrested or incomplete development of mind which includes severe impairment of intelligence and social functioning.” Full case report here.
REGINA (AUGUST) VERSUS CRIMINAL INJURIES COMPENSATION APPEALS PANEL & REGINA (BROWN) VERSUS CRIMINAL INJURIES COMPENSATION APPEALS PANEL  QB 774
At the age of 13 the applicant in the first case, Mr August committed consensual buggery as the active partner with a 53 years old man who was subsequently convicted of sex offences. Mr August had met a man called Crow in some public lavatories at the age of 13 or 14. Crow was aged 53. Mr August had gone to the toilets expecting to be paid for having sex with men. Crow was eventually convicted of three offences, the first of which was an offence of buggery, which took the form of August penetrating Crow. The second was gross indecency, which took the form of Crow and August mutually committing fellatio on each other. The third was an offence of taking indecent photographs of August. Mr August made application to the CICB, but the panel concluded having heard evidence from both Crow and August, that the crimes of which Crow had been convicted had not been crimes of violence.
