In an appeal against a sentence of three years' imprisonment for one offence of indecent assault, the judge was wrong to have made reference to an unsubstantiated allegation whilst sentencing and therefore should not have sentenced the appellant on the basis that he was a danger to women. Accordingly, the sentence was quashed and substituted with a term of 18 months' imprisonment.
