Sentencing - Theft - Duration of custodial sentence - Sentence manifestly excessive.
In all the circumstances, a sentence of two years' imprisonment for an offence of theft, in which the defendant had picked the pocket of a mother, who was out with her two young children, for 30, and had then pushed the victim away to make good her escape, was manifestly excessive. Accordingly, a sentence of 12 months' imprisonment would be substituted.
