[2008] EWCA Crim 2789

Where serious offences had been committed both before and after the coming into force of the Criminal Justice Act 2003, the sentencing court should apply the provisions of the 2003 Act and assess the offender's dangerousness for the purposes of imposing a sentence for public protection, even where the pre-Act offences were more serious than the post-Act offences. Any practice to the contrary was unsound.
