Sentencing - Unduly lenient sentence - Reference by the Attorney General - Conspiracy to defraud - Appropriate sentence.
A 240-hour community punishment order and four-month curfew order was unduly lenient where a 23-year-old offender of previous good character had pleaded guilty to conspiracy to defraud, committed in the course of his employment at a bank and involving the fraudulent transfer from various customers' accounts of 46,000. The appropriate starting point was a sentence of two years' imprisonment. However, in the circumstances, it was not appropriate to quash the sentence imposed.
