[2007] EWCA Crim 1530

A sentence of eight months' imprisonment, suspended for 18 months, following a guilty plea to an offence of wounding with intent, was unduly lenient and was increased to three years' imprisonment in circumstances where, although the offender was of previous good character, had shown real remorse and the victim had not sustained permanent injury, the offender had deliberately armed himself with a weapon, entered the victim's home at night as a trespasser and assaulted the victim whilst he was asleep.

CA (Crim Div) (Scott Baker LJ, Mitting J, Recorder of Swansea)
