Lee Griffiths, Luke Griffiths, Thomas Griffiths and Mark Jackson v R  EWCA Crim 2822 Hughes LJ, Ramsay and Irwin JJ
It is perhaps somewhat surprising, so long after it came into law, that the court needed to re-emphasise then non-mechanical approach necessary when applying Schedule 21. The aim is to pass a minimum term which reflects the true criminality involved.
The result is not necessarily a simple exercise for the judge to conduct but it is plainly what Parliament intended. The judgment is not particularly lengthy and is well worth reading by the general public. In the result, the minimum terms for these men were set by the Court of Appeal at:
Luke Griffiths: 23 years
Thomas Griffiths: 25 years
Mark Jackson: 25 years.
