ABDUCTING A CHILD

A total period of two-and-a-half years’ imprisonment imposed for two counts of abducting a 13-year-old girl was neither wrong in principle nor manifestly excessive.

[2002] EWCA Crim 2069

Where a defendant’s pursuit of his victim had all the hallmarks of paedophile behaviour a sentence of 33 months’ imprisonment for abducting a child was entirely appropriate.
