Sentencing - Causing grievous bodily harm with intent - Custodial sentence - Duration of sentence of imprisonment unduly lenient.
A sentence of 30months' imprisonment was unduly lenient where the 38-year-old offender was convicted of causing grievous bodily harm with intent to resist arrest or prevent the lawful apprehension or detention of himself and another, following an assault on a uniformed police officer. The expected sentence at first instance would have been one of at least five years' imprisonment and, taking into account the principle of double jeopardy and the offender's progress in prison, the sentence imposed on an Attorney General's Reference would be one of three years and 11 months' imprisonment.
