A sentence of two years' imprisonment for an offence of wounding with intent on a contested case was regarded as unduly lenient in view of the fact that the offender had several similar previous convictions and had a poor long-term prognosis for behavioural improvement. Accordingly, the sentence was quashed and substituted with a term of three-and-a-half years' imprisonment.
