[2001] EWCA Crim 2266

A sentence in excess of the statutory maximum of ten years should not have been imposed where it resulted in an extended sentence of 18 years, of which 12 years was the custodial term for sex offences against children. A term of ten years, of which six years was the period of imprisonment and four years was the extended licence period, was imposed instead.
