[2012] EWCA Crim 1389

A sentence of five years' imprisonment imposed on an offender who assisted another offender by disposing of the weapon used in a murder was manifestly excessive, as substantial pressure had been exerted even though it fell short of duress. The appropriate sentence was two years' imprisonment.
