In 1861, the Offences Against the Person Act (OAPA 1861) was introduced to give distinction between various criminal acts towards other people. However, from its inception it has created the requirements for defences for the numerous offences. One of the most complex of these is the defence of consent, the one to be considered here. With regard to this problem, it is necessary to identify any crime that has been committed, examine how consent will apply and analyse how satisfactory the law is on this topic. I will first discuss what crimes Wilbur has committed followed by whether he can indeed use the defence of consent before finishing with my own thoughts on the law and how this area could possibly benefit from reform.

In this case a prostitute in custody had informed the police that she was a heroin addict and she had obtained medication to alleviate her withdrawal symptoms. She made an incriminating statement which she later did not want to be admitted before the court. She said that she had taken some heroin and was therefore under the influence of the drugs while making her statement. There was evidence given by a medical expert that she also suffered from a psychiatric disorder which would was made worse by drug use and therefore affected the reliability of her confession. The Court of Appeal held that s76 (2) (b) applied because the defendant's mental state had to be taken into account and could render her confession unreliable. It would be useful to have Martin assessed to determine whether he was under the influence of drugs and what effect that could have on the reliability of his confession.

Williams: Would you mind explicitly stating the evidential presumptions regarding consent? English Citizen: Yes, I can. For an offense to be applied, it must prove that the defendant did the relevant act, and that any of the circumstance specified in subsection (2) existed, as well as that the defendant knew that those circumstances existed. In subsection (2), evidential presumptions might arise if the defendant used violence or fear, as well as if the victim was asleep, unlawfully detained, administered a substance that caused them to be subject to the rape or if the victim possessed a physical disability. Furthermore, sufficient evidence must be presented to raise an issue as to whether the
