Attorney General's Reference (No 86/2015)

Sentence – Appeal. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that a total sentence of 40 months' imprisonment for wounding with intent and aggravated vehicle taking had been unduly lenient. In particular, the substantial and on-going harm caused to the victim, as well as the offender's high culpability for his actions, had outweighed his personal mitigation. A total sentence of six years' imprisonment was imposed in substitution.
