Sentence Imprisonment. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division held that a sentence of seven years' imprisonment for an offence of causing grievous bodily harm with intent was unduly lenient bearing in mind the fact that the offence had fallen squarely within category 1 of the relevant sentencing guidelines. Accordingly, the sentence of 7 years' imprisonment would be quashed and a sentence of 13 years' imprisonment would be substituted.
