Possession of Firearm in UK Law

Leading Cases
  • Jordan Antoine v The Queen
    • Court of Appeal (Criminal Division)
    • 15 Octubre 2014

    This appellant was carrying a loaded revolver through the streets of Luton. He knew the risk he was taking of being sentenced to a long custodial term. The sentence of 4 months' detention was an unexpected, astonishing and undeserved windfall. Leaving aside the misguided attempt to have the sentence revisited by the Magistrates, the appellant was aware that appropriate charges were to be brought 9 days after the sentence was imposed and only 19 days after arrest.
