[2013] EWCA Crim 1655

A sentence of 20 months' detention was appropriate in the case of an 18-year-old who had inflicted grievous bodily harm on a police officer following arrest. He had a bad record of offending, and judges were to protect police officers against being assaulted in the course of their duty by passing sentences that reflected the public's condemnation of such offences.
