Sentence - Custodial sentence - Length of sentence - Obtaining property by deception - Defendant pleading guilty to offences arising from fraud on employer - Defendant being sentenced to 14 months' detention - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Sentence Custodial sentence. In the instant case, where the defendant had been sentenced to 14 months' detention in a young offender institution following his guilty plea to offences arising out of frauds committed on his employer, it was held that, in the light of the guideline cases, the trial judge had selected too high a starting point and, in those circumstances, that the sentence of 14 months' detention was manifestly excessive. Accordingly, the sentence would be quashed and one of six months' detention would be substituted.
