Sentence Imprisonment. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that concurrent sentences of two years' imprisonment for two offences of robbery and two offences of possession of an imitation firearm were unduly lenient and that, if concurrent sentences were to be passed, it was important to ensure that they reflected adequately the overall totality of the offences. Accordingly, the concurrent sentences of two years' imprisonment would be quashed and sentences of four years' imprisonment concurrent would be substituted.
