Sentencing - Sentencing principles - Review of sentence - Death of sentencing judge - Review of sentence by judge other than sentencing judge - Validity of review - (Sentencing) Act 2000, s 155(4).
Having regard to s155(4) of the it was plain that there was no power for a judge, other than the sentencing judge, to review the sentence imposed. Where judges, recorders, or others died, the only way of rectifying what might be an unlawful sentence, or any other matter for which a review might be sought, was for that matter to come before Court of Appeal. Furthermore, in the instant case, there was no need for an anti-social behaviour order in addition to the term of imprisonment imposed in relation to a number of offences concerning motor vehicles since the public interest would be adequately protected by licence conditions.
