Sentence Imprisonment. Where the defendant had been convicted of handling stolen goods, fraud by false representation and possession of an article for use in fraud and had been sentenced to three years' imprisonment, whilst the sentence imposed on the defendant had been affected by his criminal record, the sentence was disproportionate to the facts of the instant case and would be reduced to two years' imprisonment.
