R v Connor

Sentence – Sexual offences prevention order. The sexual offences prevention order imposed on the defendant following his conviction for 12 sexual offences had failed to comply with R v Smith ([2012] 1 All ER 451), which identified as a principle of broad application that a blanket prohibition on computer use or internet access was not permissible. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in partially allowing the appeal, held that the failure to take into account the principles in Smith had been an error which had to be corrected.
