Judgement for the case Shaw v D P P

D published a book with the numbers of prostitutes via which prostitutes could be contacted. He was charged with conspiracy to corrupt public morals and HL upheld the conviction. HL accepted that it was a vague idea, but said that it was part of the common law and that it should be left to the jury to determine if it applied in each case.
