PUBLISHED April 29, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 1067

A community order imposed on an offender following his guilty plea to aggravated burglary and assault occasioning actual bodily harm was unduly lenient. The offender had a significant criminal record and there were a number of aggravating features, including the fact that the burglary took place in the early hours of the morning while the family were asleep and the use of a screwdriver as a weapon.
