In an appeal against a six-year sentence for an offence of causing grievous bodily harm with intent, whilst the injuries caused to the victim were grave, having regard to the fact that the appellant was only 21 years old and had a small child whom she had been separated from for a long period of time as a result of her imprisonment, the term would be quashed and substituted with a sentence of four years' imprisonment.
