Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Administering a substance with intention of engaging in sexual activity - Guidance - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
The offence contrary to s61 of the namely, administering a substance with intent to engage in sexual activity, was very serious indeed and any sentence imposed had to include a strong deterrent element. It followed that those who used drugs in order to commit crime had to understand that such conduct would attract very substantial terms of imprisonment, and it could not be said that the defendant's sentence of five years' on conviction was manifestly excessive, but rather it was the proper sentence in all the circumstances.
