Sentencing Yet Again
Once again there is a lot of criticism of sentencing in the comments on the previous thread and elsehere on the blog. Inspector Gadget's blog in particular has dozens of furious and sometimes intemperate comments about an appeal from sentences for gravely injuring a policeman. I am not going to say anything about it until I have had a chance to read the Appeal Court's reasons, but to be getting on with this is the Bar council's guide to the basic rules of sentencing serious crimes.
