[2007] EWCA Crim 1193

In imposing a longer term under the Criminal Justice Act 1991 s.2(2)(b) for offences of rape, indecent assault and robbery, a judge had not been justified in increasing a sentence by fifty per cent as he had failed to guard against the risk of imposing an element of imprisonment for protection of the public twice over.
