Case summary last updated at 10/01/2020 18:52 by the Oxbridge Notes in-house law team.

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.
