McKinnon J and Judge Gordon
||Jonathan Austin (assigned by the Registrar of Criminal Appeals) for the defendant.
||12 January 2004
Sentencing - Custodial sentence - Duration - Reckless arson - Appropriate sentence.
In the circumstances of the instant case, there had been no legitimate expectation raised as to the imposition of a non-custodial sentence and the erroneous treatment of the stage at which a plea of guilty had been entered had had no effect. Accordingly, the defendant's sentence of a two-year detention and training order had been appropriate.
