Asylum-seeker who avoided deportation after public campaign faces JAIL for sex assault

The offence of sexual assault by penetration has a sentencing guideline ranging from a community order to 19 years in prison, depending on how it is categorised.

Father-of-two Suganthan was bailed on condition he has no contact with the complainant and co-operates with the making of the report.

When Suganthan was released from detention in 2011 Caroline Beatty, manager of the Refugee Welcome Centre, said: “We wanted to thank Mr Williams for his help and are sure that it was his intervention that meant Siva was released.

“We are hoping that we can count on his support in the future when he makes his fresh claim.”
