Sentence - Detention - Length of sentence - Wounding with intent - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Sentence Detention. The defendant's extended sentence of seven years for an offence of wounding with intent was reduced to an extended sentence of six years, in circumstances where counsel had advised the defendant not to plead guilty straight away because of his concerns that the defendant, aged 14, might not have had the requisite intent and the judge had decided not too give full credit for the defendant's guilty plea, it having come at a late stage.
