Sentencing - Causing death by dangerous driving - Custodial sentence - Duration of sentence not manifestly excessive - Disqualification from driving - Duration of disqualification manifestly excessive.
In the instant case, the defendant was sentenced to four years' detention in a young offender institution, and was disqualified from driving for 10years for an offence of causing death by dangerous driving. The sentence of imprisonment was held not to be manifestly excessive, however the period of disqualification was reduced to a period of five years, as the judge had failed properly to take into account the claimant's young age and the strong likelihood that he had learnt his lesson.
