Sentencing - Custodial sentence - Duration - Consecutive sentences - Sentence imposed on prisoner - Conduct of judge in ordering consecutive sentence.
Where a judge had, when sentencing a defendant who had at the time of the offence been serving an existing sentence, commented in error that the imposition of the latest sentence would extend the original by six months, such an error would not create a legitimate expectation that the sentence would be capped at the length stated by the judge if in fact the sentence had been extended by a longer period.
