R v Langley

Sentence – Appeal. The claimant appealed against his sentence of eight years' imprisonment for conspiracy to commit robbery, three months' imprisonment for failure to surrender to his bail, to run concurrently and disqualification from driving for five years. The Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, in dismissing the appeal, held that the judge had been obliged to consider that a firearm had been used and the defendant's five previous offences of failing to surrender to bail. Further, as the defendant had driven the getaway car, the disqualification had been entirely appropriate.
