Regina v Coleman: CACD 17 Oct 1996

The defendant had been convicted of ram-raiding and sentenced to a term of imprisonment. He appealed a driving ban imposed at the same time on the basis that it should not exceed the term of imprisonment.
Held: Though this was a well recognised consideration, it was not a principle. The ban was reduced, but still to a period in excess of the term of imprisonment.
