I posted here, here & here about the case of Munir Hussain who was jailed for 30 months for assaulting a burglar he chased from his home after being tied up & threatened with death.

I argued that whilst it was right to prosecute Mr Hussain, on the basis of the level of injury caused, a prison sentence wasn’t the correct result. I’m pleased to see the High Court agrees & yesterday he had his sentence replaced with a one-years suspended sentence. He served five weeks in prison. It’s a shame the court couldn’t have gotten it right in the first place.
