In this month’s edition, Sarah Elliott QC looks at R v Reed and others, where the CACD considered the correct approach to sentencing in sexual offences against children where no actual sexual activity took place, including those cases where the child was fictional. Rabah Kherbane looks at the case of R v White where the CACD considered the application of the Drug Offences Guideline and the appropriate reduction for strong personal mitigation, and I look at the case of Plaku, where the CACD set out guidance as to the proper approach to reductions for Guilty pleas.
