[2013] EWCA Crim 1450

A sentence of 15 months' imprisonment imposed for 14 historic indecent assaults was unduly lenient and was increased to one of 30 months. Even though the offender, a highly regarded television and radio presenter with no previous convictions, was 83 years old, in poor health, and had not offended for over 25 years, the original sentence did not reflect the offences' criminality given their lifelong impact on the victims and public concern over sexual crimes against children and young victims.
