R v Khan



[2019] EWCA Crim 1752

Successful appeal against sentence for an individual who pleaded guilty to offences of fraud, possession of a bladed article and for failing to surrender to bail. The appeal was allowed after the Court of Appeal agreed that the fraud matter, where the appellant had used another person’s driving licence he found in an attempt to open a bank account, had been incorrectly categorised by the sentencing judge and therefore the sentence was manifestly excessive. The sentence of 9 months’ imprisonment in respect of the fraud matter was quashed and a sentence of 4 months’ imprisonment was substituted.
