[2012] EWCA Crim 1906

A judge had erred in finding that an attempt to inflict grievous bodily harm with intent fell within category 1 of the sentencing guidelines for assault on the basis that there had been the potential for greater harm or serious injury. However, given the serious aggravating features, which indicated a high degree of culpability and gravity, the offence was to be placed at the top of the sentence range in category 2 and the appropriate sentence was one of nine years' imprisonment before any credit for a guilty plea.

CA (Crim Div) (Rafferty LJ DBE, Cox J DBE, Globe J)
