Sentencing - Theft - Aggravating and mitigating factors - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Where the defendant pleaded guilty to theft, after being caught pickpocketing a wallet from a 65-year-old man, and sentenced to 27 months' imprisonment, to three months' imprisonment for a Bail Act offence and re-sentenced to six months' imprisonment in substitution for a probation order, all to be served consecutively, it was held that none of the sentences were manifestly excessive, except in so far as the six months in substitution for the probation order should have been concurrent not consecutive. To that extent the appeal would be allowed.
