[2013] EWCA Crim 943

A sentence of 12-months' imprisonment for failure to surrender to bail without reasonable excuse was not manifestly excessive. The case was an extreme one of its kind: the offender had been at large for 13 years, had disrupted the administration of justice and undermined the course of justice, all of which were aggravating features justifying a sentence outside of the range laid down in the sentencing guidelines.
