John Caudle acts in case where Solicitor General refused leave by the Court of Appeal to argue Sentence Unduly Lenient

News 6 Jun 19

John Caudle, instructed by Richard Atkinson of Tuckers Solicitors, represented a 17 year old Defendant charged with two Robberies and Possessing an Offensive Weapon which he used to threaten the victims during the course of the Robberies.

Despite having previous convictions for Robbery, Attempted Robbery and Possessing Offensive Weapons, he was sentenced to a Standard Youth Rehabilitation Order with a number of stringent conditions and requirements. The sentencing judge also ruled that it would be Unjust to impose the Mandatory Minimum Sentence in relation to the Offensive Weapon Count.

The Court of Appeal ruled that the Sentence was not Unduly Lenient and refused to give the Solicitor General leave to argue that it was.
