[2004] EWCA Crim 3305

A sentence of 11 years' detention whilst severe, was not manifestly excessive for an offence of gross negligence manslaughter, where the appellant had driven in an erratic and dangerous way, and for such a prolonged period, as to put numerous people at grave risk of danger. It was a misjudgement by the Criminal Cases Review Commission to refer the sentence, as no point of law or information, not raised in previous proceedings was identified.
