Sentence – Consecutive sentence. It could not be said that the defendant's total sentence of five-and-a-half years' imprisonment had been other than just and proportionate to reflect the totality of the serious offending against the background of such a bad record for similar offences. Accordingly, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, dismissed his appeal against the sentence imposed for robbery in a dwelling, burglary of that dwelling, theft of a vehicle driving whilst disqualified and using a vehicle without insurance.
