Latest Public Consultation

Consultation on CPS Legal Guidance on Secondary Liability

The CPS has revised its Legal Guidance on Secondary Liability (previously titled "Joint Enterprise") following the decision of the Supreme Court in R v Jogee; Ruddock v The Queen [2016] UKSC 8; UKPC 7.

This consultation document sets out the main principles of secondary liability, as stated in Jogee, and provides guidance on how prosecutors should approach charging decisions in cases of secondary liability, in particular those that involve conditional intent and those that involve group assaults.

We want to know what you think.
