[2001] EWCA Crim 2308

A total sentence of two years' imprisonment was manifestly excessive for an appellant who had committed two isolated offences of indecent assault and the appropriate sentence was a term of 12 months. An order disqualifying the appellant from working with children was set aside on the basis that it was unlikely that he would commit further offences against children.
