R v Gwilym

Sentence – Extended term of imprisonment. The recorder had erred in imposing a consecutive determinate sentence instead of a concurrent term. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, allowed the defendant's appeal against sentence and adjusted the sentence of 13 weeks' imprisonment for racially aggravated common assault so that it ran concurrent with, rather than consecutive to the five-year extended sentence for assault occasioning actual bodily harm.
