[2008] EWCA Crim 819

Where an offender met the criteria of dangerousness for the purposes of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.225, the public could properly be protected by a sentence of imprisonment for public protection instead of a life sentence. A life sentence should be reserved for those cases where the culpability of the offender was particularly high or the offence itself was particularly grave.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Phillips of Worth Matravers LCJ, Wilkie J, Openshaw J)
