R v ANDREW FINN (2012)

PUBLISHED March 21, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 881

It had not been unjust for a judge to activate a suspended term of imprisonment in full despite the fact that the offender had completed an unpaid work requirement imposed as part of the suspended sentence order, given the offender's continued criminal activity and failure to engage with the principal purpose of the order.
