Charles Drinnan successful in the Court of Appeal

Mr. Drinnan, acting for the Appellant, renewed an application to the full Court for leave to appeal sentence after it was refused by the Single Judge.

Mr. Drinnan originally represented the Appellant at the 4-day trial at Isleworth Crown Court in September. The Appellant was convicted of burglary and was sentenced to 30 months’ immediate custody.

HHJ Dean QC, giving Judgement, granted leave and agreed with Mr. Drinnan’s submissions that the sentence was manifestly excessive. The sentence was reduced by half to 15 months’ custody.
