HM Advocate v AB

Sentencing – Rape – Oral penile penetration. High Court of Justiciary: Allowing an appeal against sentence by the Crown in the case of a respondent who was found guilty of orally raping a 14-year-old complainer, the daughter of his partner, and was sentenced to 3 years' imprisonment, the court held that the sentence was unduly lenient, as falling out with the range reasonably open to the trial judge, and it substituted a sentence of 5 years' imprisonment.
