Grievous bodily harm – application for leave to appeal sentence

29 March 2016

Fisher Dore Lawyers

Fisher Dore appeared for Mr P, who pleaded guilty to unlawfully doing grievous bodily harm with intent to do grievous bodily harm. He was sentenced to 7 years imprisonment, with parole eligibility fixed at 1 October 2016. Mr P sought leave to appeal his sentence on the basis that it was unreasonable.

The Court found that while the head sentence was warranted, the parole eligibility date did not reflect the mitigating factors surrounding Mr P’s background. The parole eligibility was fixed at 1 February 2016.
