The Case

Where a defendant had pleaded guilty to a street robbery of goods with a value of 750, a notional determinate sentence of five years' imprisonment would be appropriate. In the instant case, the defendant would serve a minimum term of two and a half years' imprisonment, less 91 days for time spent in custody on remand.
