The Attorney General Dominic Grieve said he is "pleased" that the Court of Appeal have jailed paedophile Neil Wilson for two years after ruling that the original non-custodial punishment was "unduly lenient".
Neil Wilson, 40, received a suspended sentence after his 13-year-old victim was called "predatory" by prosecuting barrister Robert Colover in August.
However, three judges at the Court of Appeal have ruled that the original non-custodial term handed out in the case of Neil Wilson was "plainly and without doubt unduly lenient".
Speaking after the hearing, the Attorney General said:
Paedophile Neil Wilson, who received a suspended sentence after his 13-year-old victim was called "predatory", has been ordered to serve an immediate two-year jail sentence by Court of Appeal judges.
They ruled that his non-custodial punishment was "unduly lenient".
