Re Carroll (application under para 3 of Sch 22 to the Criminal Justice Act 2003)

Sentence – Mandatory life sentence. The offender, when aged 15 years, had inflicted serious violence causing death, for which he was convicted of murder and a minimum term of 11 years, less time spent on remand, had been imposed. The present proceedings concerned the review of the minimum term. The Administrative Court refused to recommend a reduction of the tariff, as his very good progress could not cross the extremely high hurdle of exceptional and unforeseen.
