[2008] EWCA Crim 451

A sentence of four years' imprisonment imposed upon a 40-year-old businessman following his conviction for an offence of attempted kidnap was reduced to a sentence of three years' imprisonment where the man, who was not of good character, had committed the offence as a way of taking the law into his own hands to settle a business debt owed to him. The reduction in sentence was attributable to his mitigating factors, including the fact that he had made good his past record in recent years by charitable and community work.
