Sentence – Sexual offences against children. The defendant renewed his application for leave to appeal against his sentence of seven years' imprisonment for two counts of sexual assault of a child under 13 years and four counts of sexual activity with a child. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, granted permission and allowed the appeal only to the extent of quashing such parts of the order as required payment of a victim surcharge, which had been unlawfully imposed, as the sentence had not included a fine.
