Latham LJ, Richards J and Sir John Blofeld
||Keith Talbot (assigned by the Registrar of Criminal Appeals) for the defendant.
||11 June 2003
Sentencing - Sexual or violent offence - Custodial sentence for term longer than commensurate with seriousness of offence - Appropriateness.
The defendant's extended sentence of 12years' imprisonment for rape and licence period of 10years was manifestly excessive in the circumstances where it was the defendant's first sexual offence and there was no indication that he presented a future risk of committing similar offences.
