Sentencing - Causing death by dangerous driving - Mitigating and aggravating features - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
The defendant had been convicted of causing death by dangerous driving and sentenced to two years' imprisonment, disqualified from driving for three years and ordered to pass an extended driving test. The sentencing judge identified the aggravating features of the offence as driving too fast for the conditions and overtaking just before a dangerous S-bend. It was held on appeal that sentence was not manifestly excessive.
