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:
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.
