[2007] EWCA Crim 1245

Where two equally culpable offenders were subject to significantly different starting points under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 Sch.21, the courts should not approach the sentencing exercise mechanistically, but should reflect the appropriate distinction in their ages against the background to the offence.
