It was wrong in law for the judge to have imposed a consecutive sentence of 12 months' imprisonment under s.40 Criminal Justice Act 1991 for a previous offence in that the appellant was an "existing prisoner" within the meaning of the Act to which s.40 did not apply.

CA (Crim Div) (Beldam LJ, Maurice Kay J, Jackson J)
