Graham Ovenden Appeal to be Heard by High Court

It was announced today that the Court of Appeal has agreed to hear the appeal by Graham Ovenden of his convictions under the Indecency with Children Act 1960. Although no date for a hearing has yet been set, the Court has indicated that the hearing will be held in open court, rather than "in camera," as is often the case with such convictions.

This blog has already discussed some of the issues on appeal. In the coming weeks, we will present additional issues that are likely to be considered by the high court.


  1. Hello,

    This is all looking like good news!

    I have a small booklet about Graham Ovenden and previous cases, (no author supplied) it's light blue with a Marcus Adams photo on the cover and is the main title is "The obscene Publications squad versus art . . . " I recognise quotes and excerpts from it on here which could hardly come from another source, so I was wondering if you wrote it . . . ? Best regards, Thomas

    1. spoke too soon Thomas

      27 months, the same week the mother of Baby P was released after barely serving 48. Baffling.

  2. Hello, Very sorry to hear the verdict of 09th of October, unfortunatly I also have to report that a substantial number of your posts on your blog have been deleted due to complaints subbmitted about them.
