Practice and Procedure

R v SIMON K (2012)

PUBLISHED June 26, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1631

The court set aside a sentence of imprisonment for public protection imposed on an offender who had been convicted of raping his two stepdaughters over a number of years. Although the offender was dangerous and posed a high risk of harm, the public could adequately be protected by the imposition of a 20-year extended sentence.
