Sexual offender’s sentence increased to 5 years’ imprisonment
Jamie Moreno was previously sentenced to 3 years and 2 months’ imprisonment for sexual assault
A man who sexually assaulted a woman returning home after a night out has received an increased prison sentence after his case was referred under the unduly lenient sentence scheme.
Jamie Moreno’s victim woke to find him sexually abusing her in the back of his car when trying to return home after a night out.
Moreno, who was 55 at the time of the assault, pleaded guilty to two counts of assault by penetration.
On 30 June 2022 at Wood Green Crown Court, Moreno, aged 58, was sentenced to 38 months’ imprisonment.
The court ordered this was to run consecutive to a separate sentence of 24 months’ imprisonment passed down by the Crown Court at Inner London on 8 April 2022 for attempted assault by penetration and two counts of sexual assault.
Following the sentencing, the case was referred to the Court of Appeal under the Unduly Lenient Sentence scheme.
On 27 January 2023, the Court of Appeal found Moreno’s original sentence to be unduly lenient and increased it to 5 years’ imprisonment.
Speaking after the hearing, the Solicitor General Michael Tomlinson KC MP said:
Moreno took advantage of the victim’s vulnerable state and subjected her to a sickening sexual assault.
This increased sentence sends a clear message that sexual assault is never acceptable and will be met with robust punishment.
