A sentence of two years' imprisonment for offences of breaching restraint orders was wrong in principle. In view of the fact that the appellant was clearly in need of social care treatment, the sentence was quashed and substituted with a two-year probation order with conditions that he reside with his family in Kent and undergo regular counselling sessions.
