Sentencing - Burglary - Custodial sentence - Basis of plea - Defendant sentenced on basis offence opportunistic follow up of another's break-in - Whether sentence of 12 months' imprisonment manifestly excessive.
A sentence of 12 months' imprisonment was too long for an offence of burglary, described by the sentencing judge as 'an opportunistic follow up of someone else's break-in'. The correct starting point was in the region of eight to nine months' imprisonment, which would be reduced to six months' imprisonment to reflect the defendant's guilty plea.
