R v GRAND-MAN S (2009)

PUBLISHED September 17, 2009

[2009] EWCA Crim 1980

A recorder had erred in revoking a suspended sentence order and requiring the offender to serve half the suspended term because of incidents of non-compliance with its supervision requirements where, overall, there had been substantial compliance, there were suitable explanations for the incidents of non-compliance, and out-of-date comments made in the original pre-sentence report had erroneously been taken into account.
