The Attorney General may conclude that a sentence is 'unduly lenient' and therefore susceptible to review1 if it falls outside the range of sentences which in the light of all the relevant factors (including any sentencing guidelines2) could reasonably be considered appropriate3. A sentence may be unduly lenient if the sentencing court has imposed a community order where a custodial sentence would be more appropriate
