[2007] EWHC 1798 (Admin)

Where a Crown Court judge had mistakenly sentenced a convicted rapist under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.227 instead of under the serious offences provisions of the Act, and had refused to correct the situation under the slip rule, the High Court had no jurisdiction to deal with an application for judicial review of the sentencing decision.

DC (Lord Phillips LCJ, Griffith Williams J)
