[2004] EWCA Crim 3154

A sentence of detention for various sexual offences, for a young offender who had been sexually abused as a child, had not been wrong in principle but was substituted by an extended sentence including an extended period on licence to enable assessment for treatment on a sex offender programme, as such a programme was unavailable to young offenders in custody.
