In an unsuccessful appeal against a sentence of ten years' detention in a young offender institute for offences of burglary and aggravated burglary of dwelling houses belonging to the elderly, whilst the sentence was lengthy, there was a need to protect the public as well as a need to deter others from committing similar crimes and accordingly the sentence was entirely correct in all the circumstances.
