R v Hart

Sentence – Sexual offences. There had been an insufficient basis for the judge to make a finding of dangerousness against the defendant and to impose an extended sentence of 15 years, comprising a custodial term of 12 years and an extended licence period of 3 years for a series of sexual offences, including indecent assault and rape. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, allowed the appeal and substituted a determinate sentence of 12 years' imprisonment.
