ADMITTED BREACH OF SUSPENDED SENTENCE ORDER IMPOSED FOR DOMESTIC BURGLARY

A total sentence of 128 weeks’ imprisonment imposed following guilty pleas to non-domestic burglary, criminal damage, driving whilst disqualified and an admitted breach of a suspended sentence order was quashed and replaced with 20 months’ imprisonment where the sentence imposed for the low-value burglary was manifestly excessive, and the judge had erred in activating the whole term of the suspended prison sentence given the offender’s compliance with the community requirements of the suspended sentence order.
