Regina v Walker (Simon John): CACD 2006

Section 8(1) of the SOA creates two basic offences. In the first case a defendant must intentionally cause a child (B) to engage in ‘sexual activity’. In the second a defendant must intentionally incite a child (B) to engage in ‘sexual activity’. In the latter case the essence of the offence is the intentional ‘incitement’, that is the intentional seeking to bring about something by encouragement or persuasion, by the defendant.
