Practice and Procedure

R. v G (2013)

PUBLISHED July 3, 2013

A custodial term of four years' imprisonment for four offences of sexual assault on a child under 13 was not manifestly excessive, but had to be restructured from various consecutive terms to concurrent terms including a single sentence of four years' imprisonment so as to satisfy the conditions for the imposition of an extended sentence under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.226A(1)(d). The eight-year extension period imposed was, however, manifestly excessive and was substituted by one of five years.
