R v Walford [2017] NZDC 10523

Published 11 September 2017

Sentencing — re-sentence — robbery — possession of an offensive weapon. The defendant appeared for sentencing on a robbery that involved premeditation and planning, threats, intimidation, and the presence of a second individual who encouraged the defendant. The defendant was also to be re-sentenced on an earlier robbery. An uplift was given for the charge of possession of an offensive weapon. No allowance for youth was made in regards to the sentencing for the most recent robbery as it was factored in when re-sentencing the defendant on the earlier robbery charge. For the charge of robbery the defendant was sentenced to two years and three months' imprisonment, and on the charge of robbery for which he was re-sentenced the defendant was sentenced to nine months' imprisonment to be served concurrently. The defendant was sentenced to a total term of imprisonment of two years and three months. Judgment Date: 19 May 2017.
