[2004] EWCA Crim 2109

A total sentence of five years' imprisonment for causing grievous bodily harm and cruelty to a person under 16 was manifestly excessive. The judge either had too high a starting point in mind or had given insufficient credit for the defendant's pleas and his intellectual inadequacies. The sentence would be reduced to three years six months.
