Practice and Procedure

R v FOX ROSWELL (2012)

PUBLISHED April 30, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 944

An extended sentence was reduced on appeal to less than 30 months even though the offender had already served the sentence. The judge had imposed the lengthy extension period in order for the defendant to attend a sex offender treatment programme, but had not intended the consequence that the defendant would remain on the sex offender's register for life.
