R v T (2006)

PUBLISHED November 20, 2006

[2006] EWCA Crim 3049

It was not for the courts to assess the reasons behind the prosecution's decision to charge an individual under the Sexual Offences Act 2003 s.8 rather than s.5 or s.9 and, in the circumstances, a sentence of five years' imprisonment imposed on the individual was not manifestly excessive.
