R v DAVID MURPHY (2012)

PUBLISHED October 3, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 2273

A total sentence of four years' imprisonment was manifestly excessive for two counts of breaching a non-molestation order, one count of common assault and one count of dangerous driving where the offences occurred in the same course of conduct. The use of a car as a weapon to harass and injure a victim required a significant term of imprisonment but a sentence of three years' imprisonment properly reflected the criminality of the conduct.
