City and County of Swansea v Swansea Crown Court

Sentence – Supervision order. The Administrative Court quashed a supervision order made following the second interested party's conviction for 13 charges of rape of a child under the age of 13 and seven charges of causing a child to engage in sexual activity. The recorder had had no jurisdiction to make the order, pursuant to para 2 of Sch 1 to the Criminal Procedure (Insanity Act) 1964, as the designated supervisor had not consented to supervise and there had been no evidential foundation upon which the recorder could properly have made a finding that she had.
