Sentence - Custodial sentence - Robbery - Minimum period to be served - Crown Court judge failing to specify minimum period - Appropriate minimum period.
Where the Crown Court judge had failed to specify the minimum period that the offender had to serve out of a notional determinate sentence of seven years' imprisonment upon his guilty plea to offences that amounted to a campaign of robbery and theft from the person in which the victims had been specifically targeted because of their age and vulnerability, his minimum period would be set at three and a half years' imprisonment, less the 87 days that he had spent in custody on remand. In all the circumstances, there was no reason to depart from the rule that the minimum period should be based on half of the appropriate notional determinate sentence.
