Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Common assault - Theft - Whether judge erring in imposing consecutive sentences.
Sentence Imprisonment. In the instant case, where the defendant had pleaded guilty to common assault and theft, and the judge had imposed consecutive sentences of six and nine months' imprisonment respectively, the sentence of nine months' imprisonment was quashed and substituted by a concurrent sentence of two months, since it was usually wrong to impose consecutive sentences for offences arising out of one incident. The sentence of six months for theft was upheld.
