Practice and Procedure

R v ROY BENNETT (2010)

PUBLISHED April 15, 2010

[2010] EWCA Crim 902

A total sentence of five years' imprisonment was appropriate in the case of a 72-year-old firearms collector who had pleaded guilty to eight offences of possessing a number of firearms without the requisite certificates, the number of weapons involved making it impossible to say that there were exceptional circumstances for not imposing the statutory maximum.
