Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Wounding with intent - Defendant pleading guilty at earliest opportunity - Defendant being sentenced to three-and-a-half years' detention - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Where the defendant had pleaded guilty to a count of wounding with intent at the earliest opportunity, and he had been sentenced to three-and-a-half years' detention in a young offenders institution, the court ruled that that sentence was manifestly excessive. Having regard to the appropriate starting point, the age of the defendant, and his plea at the earliest opportunity, a sentence of three years' detention would be substituted.
