Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm - Affray - Defendant sentenced to life imprisonment - Judge imposing determinate sentence of two years' imprisonment for affray following imposition of life sentence for principle offence - Whether sentence unlawful.
Sentence Imprisonment. The defendant's appeal against, inter alia, a sentence of life imprisonment for the offence wounding with intent to do grievous bodily harm would be allowed. The instant case did not fall into a category which justified a sentence of life imprisonment and a sentence of imprisonment for public protection was appropriate. The sentence of life imprisonment would be quashed and substituted by a sentence of imprisonment for public protection with a minimum term of three years.
