The Lord Chief Justice, sitting at the Court of Appeal has today lifted the suspension on the sentence handed to Neil Wilson, and replaced it with a 2 year prison sentence.

Speaking after the hearing, the Attorney General, Dominic Grieve QC MP said:

Neil Wilson exploited a young and vulnerable girl. He pleaded guilty to sexual activity with a child, making indecent photographs of a child and possessing extreme pornography.

I asked the Court of Appeal to examine whether the sentence was appropriate, given the seriousness of the offences, and I am pleased that they have found that this sentence was unduly lenient and have imposed an immediate sentence of imprisonment.

Neil Wilson had previously pleaded guilty to an offence of sexual activity with a child as well as offences of making indecent images of a child and offences of possession of an extreme pornographic image. On 12 August 2013 he was sentenced to a total of 12 months imprisonment suspended for 2 years at Snaresbrook Crown Court, London.
