Attorney General's Reference (No 36/2016)

Sentence – Extended term of imprisonment. On a reference by the Attorney General, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that an extended sentence of 140 months, comprising a custodial element of 92 months and an extended licence period of 48 months, for causing grievous bodily harm with intent, had been unduly lenient. In all the circumstances, the custodial element of that sentence would be quashed and in its place, a term of 11 years' imprisonment would be imposed. The extended licence period of 48 months would remain the same.
