Marsden v Crown Prosecution Service

Criminal law – Obstructing constable in execution of duty. The appellant appealed by way of case stated against his conviction for resisting an officer in the execution of his duty. The Administrative Court, in dismissing the appeal, held that there had been sufficient evidence for the justices to have found that consent had been given for the officer to enter the property on the first occasion. That consent had still been effective when the officer had re-entered the premises, pursuant to and within the scope of that permission. Further, the consent had not been terminated by words used by the appellant.
