*R v Clifford

Criminal law – Indecent assault. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, dismissed the defendant Max Clifford's appeal against sentence in respect of eight counts of indecent assault. The court held that, after consideration of the individual offences and the application of modern sentencing attitudes reflected in the guidelines, but tempered by the need to have regard to the statutory maximum available at the time, an overall sentence of eight years' imprisonment had been justified and correct.
