Attorney General's Reference (No 119/2014);

Sentence – Imprisonment. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that a sentence of four years' imprisonment for an offence contrary to s 18 of the Offences Against the Person Act 1861 had been unduly lenient, in circumstances where there had been a sustained attack and the victim had been left with double vision. The sentence was substituted for one of seven years and four months' imprisonment.
