[2012] EWCA Crim 1279

A sentence of five years' imprisonment imposed, after a guilty plea, upon an offender who had committed over 20 offences of burglary was not manifestly excessive. There would be cases where the record of the offender, combined with his inability or unwillingness to respond to non-custodial options, were factors which entitled a sentencing judge to depart radically from the sentencing guidelines.
