R v Curr

[1968] 2 QB 944

Case summary last updated at 11/01/2020 14:31 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

Judgement for the case R v Curr

D organised a money lending scheme, getting his assistants to go and collect other families’ allowances owed to other people. CA quashed his conviction on the basis that the assistants didn’t know that they weren’t entitled to collect the money. Therefore the assistants didn’t know that they were being incited and hence D could not be said to have incited them. However, provided D believed they knew, Ashworth argues, it ought to have been a case of incitement.
