R v NR (2012)

PUBLISHED May 18, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 1258

A sentence of four years' detention imposed following guilty pleas to four offences of burglary and two offences of attempted burglary was reduced to 40 months' detention. The sentencing judge had not paid sufficient regard to the need to adjust the starting point for an adult committing the offences in question in order to reflect the offender's age.
