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

Sentence – Mandatory life sentence. The offender, when aged 13, was involved with four others in the killing of a 16-year-old victim. The present proceedings concerned the review of the minimum term. The Administrative Court held that the reports on the offender were favourable and he had clearly made progress. However, that progress was no greater than would have been hoped. It was clear from the reports that he had not qualified at present for any tariff reduction.
