Sentence - Custodial sentence - Dangerous offenders - Causing grievous bodily harm - Offender pouring hot water and sugar over fellow inmate - Judge imposing detention for public protection - Whether criteria of dangerousness satisfied - Whether sentence wrong in principle.
Sentence Custodial sentence. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that, where a young defendant, an inmate at a young offender institution, had thrown hot water with sugar over another inmate, a sentence of detention for public protection was neither manifestly excessive nor wrong in principle and the judge had been entitled to conclude that an extended sentence was not appropriate to protect the public from the serious harm posed by the offender.
