Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Robbery - Defendant targeting 75-year old man at cash point - Defendant stealing £40 cash after pushing victim to ground - Judge imposing sentence of four years' imprisonment - Whether manifestly excessive.
Sentence Imprisonment. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, allowed the appeal against sentence of a defendant who had been sentenced to four years' imprisonment following his guilty plea to robbery as, although the instant case was serious and the judge had been correct to be concerned to punish such mean spirited behaviour and preying on the vulnerable, a term of three years would have served the interests of the public on the facts.
