[2001] EWCA Crim 2406

A sentence of six years' detention in a young offender institution for an offence of robbery committed with a machete and an axe was unduly lenient for a defendant who had pleaded not guilty and was quashed and substituted with a term of seven years. A co-defendant who had lost his nerve at the last minute had been appropriately sentenced to four years for the same offence given his guilty plea and his previous convictions.

CA (Crim Div) (Kay LJ, Burton J, Judge Zucker QC)
