Sentence Imprisonment. In the instant case, where the defendant had been convicted of rape and had been sentenced to ten years' imprisonment, the sentence could not be regarded as manifestly excessive. Although the defendant's personal mitigation had been considered it had had a lesser impact when set against the gravity of the offences.
