R v Reeves: Medical practitioner imprisonment

R v Reeves [2014] NSWCCA 154 required the Court of Criminal Appeal to reconsider a Crown appeal, asserting inadequacy of the term of imprisonment. Reconsideration was required because of earlier High Court orders.

For reasons outlined in the Court’s previous judgment, the sentences imposed by the District Court were manifestly inadequate: [66]. On this occasion, in respect of the offence of maliciously inflicting grievous bodily harm with intent, the Court imposed at [72] a sentence of 3 years in lieu of the initially imposed sentence of 4 years (and the sentence imposed in the District Court of 2 years 6 months).

As the non-parole period had expired, Reeves remained on parole.
