[2013] EWCA Crim 2108

A sentence of four years' imprisonment was appropriate for an offence of sexual assault where the offender had pretended to be a taxi-driver, targeting lone, drunken females, and where he had prevented his victim from leaving his car before taking her to a dark area to assault her in extremely frightening circumstances. As the force was minimal and there was no attempt to undress his victim or degrade her in any way, a sentence of six years' imprisonment was too long.
