Demands for a retrial?
So, even when the Judge pointed out how stupid they were, CPS sought a retrial?
It seems like madness to my poor naive brain that CPS need a conviction to prove material is extreme porn or child abuse, so one poor bugger gets a very nasty criminal record and everyone else (if they are paying attention) can learn from this and dispose of the material. That really sucks. Surely in any sane country there should be a mechanism where the police or CPS or some specific censor agency could go to the courts and get a ruling on the material, rather than needing to prosecute the owners/publishers.
But then people would know the law, and could sneak and weasel out of prosecution by cowardly not breaking it, and that would never do.
