[2009] EWCA Crim 439

The minimum term of a sentence of detention for public protection imposed for attempted murder and robbery was reduced from 13 years to eleven-and-a-half years as the original sentence equated to a determinate term of 26 years' detention, which, even though the offences had been appalling, was too long for a man who was only just 17 when he committed the offences.
