Sentence - Unlawful wounding - Custodial sentence - 'Glassing' in nightclub - Defendant being sentenced to two-and-a-half years' imprisonment - Whether duration of custodial sentence manifestly excessive.
Sentence Unlawful wounding. A sentence of two-and-a-half years' imprisonment on a defendant who had pleaded guilty to an offence of unlawful wounding, arising from an incident of 'glassing' in a nightclub, was manifestly out of line with the authorities on 'glassing'. On a plea of guilty, a proper sentence in the instant case would have been two years, on the basis of a starting point of three years. The sentence of two-and-half years would be substituted with a sentence of two years.
