R v I (2009)

PUBLISHED October 6, 2009

[2009] EWCA Crim 2183

Notwithstanding the age of a young offender and his inability to appreciate his actions and their consequences, there were a number of aggravating features including the seriousness of the injury sustained by the victim and the absence of remorse that justified a sentence of 10 years' detention for an offence of causing grievous bodily harm with intent.
