Sentence - Detention - Detention in young offender institution for public protection - Judge imposing sentence of imprisonment for public protection - Whether sentence wrong in principle.
Sentence Detention. In the instant case, the judge had been correct in his assessment of the defendant as a person who posed a significant risk of causing serious harm to members of the public, however, his sentence of imprisonment for public protection was wrong in principle by reason of the fact that the defendant had been 19 years of age when he had pleaded guilty to the instant offence of robbery. Accordingly, the correct sentence was detention in a young offender institution for public protection.
