Court of Appeal grants 15 year extension of time and quashes sentence of Imprisonment for Public Protection

Farrhat Arshad appeared for the appellant, Sarah Battersby, who was sentenced to the IPP in October 2005 for an offence of Robbery.  On appeal it was argued that the appellant was not dangerous and the sentence should never have been imposed.  The Court of Appeal agreed, quashing the indeterminate sentence and replacing it with a short determinate term. 

Farrhat was instructed by Natalie Shotter at Swain & Co. solicitors.
