The defendant sought leave to appeal against sentence for sexual assaults on young girls. He had been 14 at the time.
Held: There was force in the submission that the 8 year sentence, which would be equivalent to a sentence of 12 years for an adult was simply excessive on a fourteen year old. Sentence reduced to six years.
