Where an offence was committed under s.18 Offences Against the Person Act 1861, public interest generally required a custodial sentence to be passed. A sentence of two to three years' imprisonment was appropriate where a defendant struck his victim with a bat and continued the attack after his victim had fallen to the ground.
