Manslaughter Sentence Successfully Appealed & Reduced

Having been sentenced to a custodial term of 10 years for the Manslaughter of a 46 year old man, Stuart Miller Solicitors were instructed to appeal against the sentence on the basis that is was manifestly excessive, given the facts of the case.

The case was appealed to the Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) and after arguing against the excessive sentence, referring to the recent review of sentencing in Manslaughter cases, the Court reduced the sentence to one of 7 years.
