[2008] EWCA Crim 896

A sentence of three years' detention in a young offender institution following a guilty plea to manslaughter by a 19-year-old man with no previous convictions for violent offences, who had glorified in the success of bringing his victim to the ground with a single blow and who had continued in his aggressive behaviour by throwing bricks at a car that was subsequently looking for him, was at the high end of the appropriate scale but was not manifestly excessive.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Phillips LCJ, Wilkie J, Openshaw J)
