Sentence - Sexual offences against a child - Duration of sentence - Absence of aggravating features - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
The defendant's appeal was allowed against a sentence of three years' imprisonment on three counts of having sexual intercourse with a child in circumstances where looking at the case overall, despite the seriousness of the offences, the sentence of three years' imprisonment was too high. Accordingly, that sentence would be quashed and replaced by a sentence of two and a half years' imprisonment, less the 104 days spent in custody on remand.
