R v JH (2010)

PUBLISHED June 16, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 1512

A term of 30 months' detention in a young offender institution for offences of burglary, taking a motor vehicle without consent and breach of a community order was manifestly excessive as insufficient credit had been given to the mitigating features, including the offender's age, personal circumstances and the lack of a previous custodial sentence.
