R v TL (2012)

PUBLISHED October 12, 2012

[2012] EWCA Crim 2291

A sentence of eight years' detention following a 15-year-old young offender's guilty plea to causing grievous bodily harm with intent had been too high where the judge appeared not to have followed the relevant sentencing guidelines and had failed to take into account the offender's age.
