Sawn-off shotgun "too long" for full jail sentence

More news from Nottingham:
A Man escaped a five-year mandatory jail sentence because his sawn-off shotgun was too long.

A legal loophole meant Darren Randall was only jailed for three-and-a-half years after being caught with £2,500 of cannabis and the gun.

Nottingham Crown Court heard the weapon was six inches too long to make a five-year sentence inevitable...

Hoist by Tony's petard! How too amusing! Now everyone should go out and buy a similar shotgun. Aux armes, citoyens!

Nottingham Crown Court are pricks who need bigger dicks........OK, they have to work by the book...& the police lack the imagination of their predecessors who would certainly have got busy with a hacksaw.

How do the defence lawyers sleep at night. They actually view that result as a success.
