20-YEAR-OLD MAN COMMITTING TWO STREET ROBBERIES

[2013] EWCA Crim 224 [2013] EWCA Crim 224

A sentence of detention for public protection had not been justified in the case of a young offender who had pleaded guilty to two offences of robbery, there having been no proper basis for concluding that he posed the relevant risk; the appropriate sentence was a determinate sentence of four years’ detention.
