Royce and Christopher Clarke JJ
||Fer Chinner (assigned by the Registrar of Criminal Appeals) for the defendant.
||21 April 2005
Sentencing - Robbery - Custodial sentence - Duration of sentence manifestly excessive.
Where a defendant had been sentenced to six years' detention in a young offender institution for a offence of robbery, he had not been given sufficient credit for his young age, or lack of previous convictions of a similar nature. The sentence would therefore be quashed and substituted with a sentence of five years' detention.
