[2009] EWCA Crim 1375

A suspended sentence for an offence of perverting the course of justice, in which the offender gave a false account to police in relation to a murder investigation, was unduly lenient in the circumstances; however, if an immediate custodial sentence was imposed it would be so short that the disruption and effect on the offender could not be justified.

CA (Crim Div) (Keene LJ, Dobbs J DBE, Judge Stokes QC Recorder of Nottingham )
