[2013] EWCA Crim 376

A sentence of 16 months' imprisonment imposed following a guilty plea to dangerous driving, where the offender had driven his car at a man fighting the offender's brother, was reduced to a suspended sentence of six months. The judge should have avoided immediate custody, given the risk that would have posed to the offender's employment, home and family, and where, although he had a criminal record, that was well in the past.

CA (Crim Div) (Rix LJ, Wilkie J, Judge Wide QC)
