Sentence Detention and training order. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that a sentence comprising an 18 month detention and training order for a robbery in a residential dwelling was unduly lenient in circumstances where it had involved the use of force and the infliction of injury, and the offender had previously been convicted of two offences of robbery. Accordingly, the sentence would be quashed and a sentence of six years' detention in a young offenders' institution would be substituted.
