Sentence Imprisonment. Court of Appeal, Criminal Division: The defendant's concurrent sentences of imprisonment for public protection with a minimum term of three years in respect of offences of assault by penetration of the offender's finger into the complainant's anus, rape (penile penetration of the anus), rape (penile penetration of the vagina) and rape (penile penetration of the mouth) were not unduly lenient. However, it had been unlawful to impose no separate penalty for trespass with intent to commit a sexual offence as that was a serious specified offence. Accordingly, a concurrent sentence of imprisonment for public protection with a minimum term of three years would be passed in respect of that count.
