Justified leniency is to be commended
Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
“Judges should not refrain from imposing on a defendant the sentence considered appropriate because of apprehension that that might cause the Attorney-General to challenge it as unduly lenient. Leniency where the facts justified it was to be commended, not challenged.”
