Sentencing - Corruption - Conspiracy to defraud - Custodial sentence - Sentence manifestly excessive.
Concurrent sentences of three years' imprisonment were manifestly excessive where the 50-year-old defendant (who was of previous good character and in poor health) had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud and corruption, committed in circumstances where, with a civil servant employed by the DVLA, he had dishonestly acquired valuable cherished vehicle registration numbers, which he sold at a significant cash value. The appropriate sentences were of two-and-a-half years' imprisonment, concurrent on each count.
