In all the circumstances of the instant case, where a man (the principal, who had long-standing associations with the defendant) had 'executed' a career criminal, the defendant's sentence of five years' imprisonment for assisting the principal by arranging accommodation and finance in the immediate aftermath of the murder was not manifestly excessive.
