Bailey, Regina v: CACD 4 Oct 2013

The defendants, brothers, appealed against their sentences for burglary, saying that the judge had wrongly increased their sentences to reflect their past offences and the likelihood of re-offending. The sentences were in excess of the guideline sentences for the circumstances.
Held: The 2003 Act allowed such sentences imposing a duty to pass a sentences treating previous offences as an aggravating factor, and also for deterrence.
