Sentencing - Escaping from lawful custody - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
A sentence of four years and six months' imprisonment imposed upon a defendant who pleaded guilty to escape from lawful custody (which was ordered to run consecutively to an existing sentence of eight years' imprisonment) was considered, on appeal, to be manifestly excessive. A sentence of three years' imprisonment consecutive to the existing sentence was substituted.
