Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Robbery - Three robberies committed over 36-hour period - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Where the defendant had pleaded guilty to robbery and had been sentenced to five years' imprisonment, the sentence could not be regarded as manifestly excessive. The three robberies had been committed over a period of 36 hours, and that had to considerably detract from the defendant's mitigation. In all the circumstances, the judge had properly taken into account all the factors of the instant case, and had arrived at sentences which could not be criticised.
