ATTORNEY GENERAL'S REFERENCE (NO.96 OF 2009) sub nom R v F (2010)

PUBLISHED February 11, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 350

A conviction for rape of a young offender with learning difficulties had not been rendered unsafe by any omissions in the judge's summing up and the non-custodial sentence imposed, although arguably unduly lenient, was not amended as it was considered to be in the long-term public interest.
