[2012] EWCA Crim 1751

A five-year period of disqualification from driving, when coupled with a 36-month custodial sentence, was excessive in relation to a husband who had been convicted of conspiracy to pervert the course of justice for involving his two sons in a plot to physically obstruct a police car that was engaged in the chase of a car being driven by his wife, who was driving while disqualified. Having served his prison sentence, the husband should be encouraged to rehabilitate himself, and the disqualification period was reduced to one of four years.
