R v I.A. (2005)

PUBLISHED August 5, 2005

On the facts, a hospital order with an indefinite restriction order imposed under the Mental Health Act 1983 s.41 offered the public very great protection from the offender who had been convicted of repeat sexual offences against young boys and who suffered from mental impairment, which could not be treated through a term of life imprisonment.
