[2001] EWCA Crim 891

A sentence of four years and nine months' imprisonment for robbery was reduced on appeal as there should not have been a Newton hearing to establish whether a firearm was used, rather the prosecution should have inserted a count in the indictment to reflect that element.

CA (Crim Div) (Lord Woolf of Barnes LCJ, Astill J, Douglas Brown J)
