R V LEE COSTI (2006)

PUBLISHED November 27, 2006

[2006] EWCA Crim 3152

An extended sentence comprising a custodial term of nine years and an extension period of one year imposed for sexual offences committed against girls under the age of 16 was manifestly excessive in the light of the defendant's early guilty pleas, his youth and his previous good character.
