[2004] EWCA Crim 1163

The defendant's convictions for violent disorder were safe as the judge was right to refuse a submission of no case to answer as there was sufficient evidence to go before the jury. The third defendant's sentence of 15 months for violent disorder and bail offences was manifestly excessive given all the co-defendants were given non custodial sentences, given the history and the delays the sentence would be reduced to six months to enable the defendant's immediate release.

CA (Crim Div) (Hooper LJ, Roderick Evans J)
