L C Application for Judicial Review of Decisions of the Criminal Injuries Compensation Board: OHCS 14 May 1999

A claim for compensation for damages resulting from repeated acts of indecent exposure could properly be refused on the basis that the crime was not a crime of violence as such. The Board must consider in each case whether the act complained of was, in the ordinary and natural meaning of the words, a crime of violence.
