Sentence Custodial sentence. Court of Appeal, Criminal Division: A sentence of nine weeks' imprisonment for the offence of attempted voyeurism involving a child, aged ten, was not manifestly excessive.The judge was correct in finding that the offence was at the lower end of level two of the sentencing guidelines. The victim was a vulnerable child and the defendant had continued to exhibit voyeuristic behaviour, however, in the circumstances, a recommendation to deport the defendant to Saudi Arabia would be quashed.
