[2013] EWCA Crim 1278

Sentences of five years' and four years' imprisonment imposed for wounding with intent imposed on a 19-year-old with a relevant criminal history and a 20-year-old with no convictions or cautions were unduly lenient and were replaced by sentences of eight years and seven years respectively in a young offender institution. They had taken part in an appalling group attack on a man helpless on the ground, kicking, punching and stamping on him and inflicting deep lacerations with a handsaw.

CA (Crim Div) (Hallett LJ, MacDuff J, Judge Cooke QC)
