Mills, 26, was originally sentenced to a 3 year Community Order for separate sexual offences against an underage girl and a woman in her thirties. Mills was also made subject to a Sexual Harm Prevention Order, a Restraining Order and a Criminal Behaviour Order.
The Attorney General referred the case to the Court of Appeal arguing that the original sentence was unduly lenient and did not accurately reflect the seriousness of the offending. The Court of Appeal agreed and replaced Mills’ sentence with an immediate custodial term of 5 years.
Speaking after the hearing, the Attorney General said:
“Daniel Mills committed sexual offences against more than one victim and I am pleased that the Court of Appeal has agreed that an immediate prison term is warranted in this case.”
