[2009] EWCA Crim 1971

Where a defendant did not have a previous conviction for a specified offence or had not received a custodial sentence of at least four years, it had not been lawful to extend his sentence under the Criminal Justice Act 2003 s.227. A total sentence of seven years' imprisonment for offences of unlawful wounding, possession of an offensive weapon and battery was reduced to one of three years and nine months.
