[2002] EWCA Crim 542

To determine whether an automatic life sentence should be imposed on a convicted rapist, the court had to consider whether he was an unacceptable risk to the public. The mere fact there was a risk of him committing a more minor offence that had previously featured in his record did not justify an automatic life sentence.

CA (Crim Div) (Keene LJ, Collins J, Moses J)
