Practice and Procedure

R v GAVIN LEWIS (2013)

PUBLISHED October 24, 2013

[2013] EWCA Crim 2163

A sentence of four years' imprisonment was justified in the case of an offender who had been convicted of punching his girlfriend a number of times about the face and stomach. The offender's criminal record, which included violence against women, and the exceptional nature of the attack took the case outside the range of the relevant sentencing guideline.
