Regina (Oakes) v Secretary of State for Justice and others – WLR Daily

Regina (Oakes) v Secretary of State for Justice and others [2010] EWCA Civ 1169; [2010] WLR(D) 267

“The different wording of the tests to be applied when considering the suitability for automatic release of a prisoner who had been recalled to prison for breaching the terms of his licence, under ss 255A(5) and 255C(3) of the Criminal Justice Act 2003 (as inserted by section 29(2) of the Criminal Justice and Immigration Act 2008) was deliberate. The test under s 255C(3), that of  ‘the protection of the public’ was broader than, and included, the test under s 255A(5), that of ‘risk of serious harm to members of the public’, in that it included the risk of re-offending upon release.”

Regina (Webb) v Secretary of State for Justice – WLR Daily

Regina (Webb) v Secretary of State for Justice [2010] WLR (D) 241

“S 116 of the Powers of Criminal Courts (Sentencing) Act 2000 conferred a unique statutory power to sentence a defendant for a new offence committed while on release on licence for an earlier offence. It was a fresh sentence not served in respect of the original offence so that even if that initial offence was a violent or sexual offence specified in Sch 15 to the Criminal Justice Act 2003 but the new offence was not, the s 116 sentence for a long-term prisoner came within s 33(1A) rather than s 33(1B) of the Criminal Justice Act 1991. The defendant was therefore entitled to be released on licence after serving half of his sentence rather than two-thirds, the applicable period under s 33(1B).”
