[2012] EWCA Crim 1512

A sentence of detention for public protection imposed on a 20-year-old for offences of kidnapping and false imprisonment was quashed and a determinate sentence of six years' detention substituted where the pre-sentence report had given undue weight to previous robbery offences committed by the offender in his youth and where the offences in the instant case did not justify the imposition of an indeterminate sentence on a stand-alone basis.
