R v OZ SMALLEY (2007)

PUBLISHED July 2, 2007

[2007] EWCA Crim 1747

A judge had erred by imposing an excessive sentence on a young offender for a burglary of a dwelling house and by ordering that the time he had spent on remand should not count towards that sentence as there were no exceptional circumstances to warrant such an order.
