[2010] EWCA Crim 1566

A judge was entitled to impose a six-year extended sentence on an offender following his guilty plea to an offence of wounding with intent despite previously indicating, in accordance with the procedure in R. v Goodyear (Karl) [2005] EWCA Crim 888, [2005] 1 W.L.R. 2532, that a three-year determinate sentence would be imposed. Reports read after the indication had been given suggested that it would be in the public interest to impose the extended sentence, and the defendant had not suffered any prejudice as he had been given the opportunity to change his plea.
