[2004] EWCA Crim 1203

Whilst a community punishment and rehabilitation order was unduly lenient for an offence of false imprisonment, the public interest would not be served by putting the defendant into prison as there had been a proper basis for the judge to take the exceptional course he did, namely, the defendant's conduct was completely out of character and a psychiatric report asserted the defendant posed no risk to women in general or the victim.
