[2009] EWCA Crim 2240

A sentencing judge had been wrong to impose a sentence of imprisonment for public protection on an offender following her plea of guilty to an offence of arson being reckless as to whether life was endangered, as he had failed to take account of material facts in the offender's favour or of the level of her dangerousness as assessed in pre-sentence reports.
