Practice and Procedure

R V ELLISON (2004)

PUBLISHED May 21, 2004

[2004] EWCA Crim 1298

An extended sentence, for an offence of indecent assault, imposed at the close of trial without the benefit of a pre-sentence report was wrong in principle as there was no indication that the licence period carried by the primary sentence would not be adequate. The extended sentence would be quashed and a sentence of two years detention substituted.
