Practice and Procedure

R V HA (2000)

PUBLISHED April 3, 2000

In a court martial appeal against a sentence of two years' imprisonment for offences of indecency with a child and indecent assault, the Court of Appeal was unpersuaded that the sentence was either wrong in principle or manifestly excessive on the ground that the appellant's family was now in financial difficulties, and accordingly the appeal was dismissed.
