Sitting at Taunton Crown Court, Circuit Judge David Ticehurst upheld Michael Overd’s appeal, after the Crown failed to provide sufficient evidence to justify the conviction. Mr Overd was convicted of a public order offence in March, following a conversation with a man self-identifying as homosexual, who objected to Mr Overd’s preaching.
