Attorney General's Reference (No 111/2015);

Appeal – Sentence. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that a sentence of 21 months' imprisonment, suspended for two years, for convictions on four counts of indecent assault on a male person, contrary to s 15(1) of the Sexual Offences Act 1956, had been unduly lenient. In the circumstances, an immediate custodial sentence of 42 months' imprisonment was imposed for each of the convictions, to run concurrently.
