ATTORNEY GENERAL'S REFERENCE (NO.20 OF 2008) sub nom R v W (2008)

PUBLISHED June 18, 2008

[2008] EWCA Crim 1383

A sentence of 18 months' imprisonment imposed concurrently on each of two counts of sexual activity with a child was unduly lenient and was replaced with a sentence of three-and-a-half-years' imprisonment as there were not any facts that allowed the judge to radically depart from the sentencing guidelines.
