Attorney General's References (Nos 02/2016 and 03/2016);

Sentence – Robbery. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that, on the facts, a sentence of 27 months' imprisonment for an offence of attempted robbery had not been unduly lenient. Although a much higher starting point might have been expected, namely one of four years, that had not rendered the adopted starting point of three years' imprisonment unduly lenient.
