[2012] EWCA Crim 2036

When activating a suspended sentence it was not always appropriate to reduce the term of the suspended sentence even where an offender had completed all or part of the community requirements attached. A judge had been entitled to activate a suspended sentence in full where the offender had not demonstrated any significant change in his behaviour, despite attending a drug and alcohol treatment programme.
