Sentencing - Arson being reckless as to whether life endangered - Custodial sentence - Non-custodial sentence imposed on appeal.
A two-year community rehabilitation order was imposed on the defendant's appeal against a sentence of three years' imprisonment for an offence of arson being reckless as to the endangerment of life, committed in circumstances, where, in an attempt to commit suicide, she had set a fire in her semi-detached house. Such a community sentence would be a merciful and effective way of dealing her, having regard to the circumstances and the fact that she had had a taste of prison.
