[2004] EWCA Crim 277

A total sentence of five years' imprisonment for wounding with intent and having an offensive weapon was unduly lenient and would be quashed. In the circumstances an automatic life sentence should have been imposed under Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 s.109 , the trigger offence being a previous conviction for rape and unlawful wounding.

CA (Crim Div) (Rose LJ, Poole J, Davis J)
