Regina v Snowden; CACD 10 Oct 2002

References: Times 11-Nov-2002
Coram: Rose LJ, Pitchers J, Sir Richard Rougier
The defendant appealed against his sentence of seven and a half years for robbery. He had rammed a vehicle from behind and then used violence against the driver before taking the car.
Held: For such activities the standard sentence should be ten years. With a valuable car, the offence could properly be compared to robbery of a bank. In this case proper allowance had been given for the plea of guilty. Appeal refused.
