The Case

Sentence Imprisonment. Where the defendant had pleaded guilty to 16 counts of having a false instrument and had been sentenced to two years' imprisonment, the sentence was manifestly excessive and would be reduced to 18 months' imprisonment. The defendant's submission that the instant case was very similar in principle to the case of R v Stanca had been well-founded.
