Criminal law Burglary. In the instant case, where the defendant had been sentenced to 18 month's imprisonment following an early guilty plea to one count of domestic burglary, it was held that, in the light of the circumstances of the offence and the defendant, that the trial judge had failed to have appropriate regard to the relevant sentencing guidelines. The circumstances of the instant case were such that a community order would have been the appropriate sentence. Accordingly, the sentence of imprisonment would be quashed and substituted with a supervision order for a period of 18 months.
