Silber J and Judge Beaumont QC

||19 July 2002
Sentencing - Custodial sentence - Duration - Robbery - Possessing an imitation firearm with intent to commit an indictable offence.
The court was determined to provide such protection as it could for those people who carried out public services and performed an important function, such as shop keepers. However, in the instant case, taking into account personal mitigating factors, a sentence of twelve years' imprisonment on each of three counts of robbery, one count of attempted robbery and four counts of possessing an imitation firearm with intent to commit indictible offences, to run concurrently, was excessive and would be substituted with a sentence of ten years' imprisonment on each count, to run concurrently.
