[2012] EWCA Crim 1704

A starting point of 18 years for a sentence of imprisonment for public protection imposed following a guilty plea by a 23-year-old to offences of grievous bodily harm and carrying a firearm with criminal intent was too high where no injury had been inflicted on the victim, having regard to the need to respect the proportionality of the offence in relation to sentences for attempted murder.
