[2009] EWCA Crim 814

A sentence of imprisonment for public protection with a minimum term of 14 years imposed for attempted murder was manifestly excessive and was reduced to 10 years, as although the relationship with the full offence needed to be borne in mind, it could not be expressed in a mathematical formula in sentencing and the judge should have taken a lower starting point than for the whole offence.
