Judgement for the case R v Bainbridge

 D bought equipment for X, which X used in a crime. The judge said that it was sufficient for prosecution to show that D knew of X’s intention to commit a crime of the type which was committed, and that he did something, with that knowledge, to help the commission of the crime. D convicted. CA said this was the correct direction. CA say that mere “suspicion” of the crime is NOT enough.
