In dismissing an appeal against a sentence of two months' detention, the Crown Court was imposing a sentence on the appellant. It was impermissible for the court to combine a probation order with an immediate custodial sentence since that was inconsistent with the purpose and spirit of s.2(1) Powers of Criminal Courts Act 1973.
