PUBLISHED July 17, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1793

A sentence of 28 months' imprisonment for the rape of an 11-year-old girl by two young offenders, aged 12 and 14, was not manifestly excessive, and there was no error of law in the level of discount applied by the judge for the offenders' guilty pleas.
