||Stephen Rees (assigned by the Registrar of Criminal Appeals) for the defendant.
||16 April 2008
Sentence - Custodial sentence - Burglary - Causing grievous bodily harm with intent - Imprisonment for public protection - Minimum term of eight years - Whether minimum term manifestly excessive.
The defendant's appeal against a minimum term of eight years, with a starting point of 20 years in a case in which the defendant had pleaded guilty, inter alia, to causing grievous bodily harm and burglary, would be allowed. In all the circumstances, a starting point of no higher than 18 years was appropriate, with a reduction of 20% for the guilty plea. Accordingly, the minimum term of eight years would be quashed and substituted by a minimum term of seven years.
