R v PT (2012)

PUBLISHED September 27, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 2191

Although imprisonment for public protection was a sentence of last resort, it was appropriate where there was nothing to say that the risk posed by a dangerous defendant would be significantly reduced by the time of the projected release date from a determinate or extended sentence.
