Practice and Procedure

R v F (2008)

PUBLISHED April 11, 2008

In the circumstances, it was inappropriate to impose a sentence of imprisonment for public protection with a minimum term of 22 months for two offences of sexual assault where it was the offender's first conviction for offences of a sexual nature, he had pleaded guilty and there was no pattern of sexual behaviour between himself and the victim even though they lived together.
