Sentencing - Indecent assault on a female - Custodial sentence - Young offender - Length of sentence not manifestly excessive.
The two defendants, aged 15 at the time of the offences, one of whom was the eight-year-old complainant's stepbrother, had, on separate occasions, indecently assaulted the complainant. In the circumstances of the instant case, the sentences imposed on each defendant of two years and three months' detention in a young offender institution could not be said to manifestly excessive or wrong in principle.
