Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Making an indecent photograph of a child - Possessing an indecent photograph of a child - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Sentence Imprisonment. The defendant's sentence of 18 months' for an offence of making an indecent photograph of a child was quashed and substituted with one of nine months' and the extension period of five years for 11 counts of making an indecent photograph of a child was quashed and substituted with two years on each count, because the trial judge's starting point of two-and-half years was too high. The extension period for count 12, possession of an indecent photograph of a child, was unlawful because the offence had occurred before the relevant provisions of the Powers of Criminal Court (Sentencing) Act 2000 had come into effect.
