Sentence Imprisonment. The defendant pleaded guilty to handling stolen goods in respect of a cashintransit robbery and was sentenced to three-and-a-half years' detention in a young offender institution. He appealed against sentence after his co-defendant's sentence for the same offence was reduced on appeal. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division held that the sentence ought to be reduced to preserve the principle of parity between defendants. Accordingly, the sentence of three-and-a-half years' detention was quashed and substituted by a sentence of two years and six months' detention.
