15-YEAR-OLD CONVICTED OF MURDERING STUDENT

A minimum term of 10-and-a-half years’ imprisonment imposed on a 15-year-old for an offence of murder was unduly lenient and replaced with one of 12 years. The offender bore more responsibility for his actions than might ordinarily be expected of a 15-year-old as a result of his history of violent offending and other aggravating features.
