When calculating the appropriate period for the registration of an offender under s.1 Sex Offenders Act 1997 reference should only have been made to the actual and immediate term of imprisonment imposed upon the offender. An extended licence period imposed under s.58(2) Crime and Disorder Act 1998 should not have been included for the purposes of the calculation.
