Sentence total

Have your say

“Armed gang are jailed for 43 years” (your report, 10 July).

Why does the headline quote the total number of years to be served by the five men? This is at worst misleading since the gang were not jailed for 43 years and at best irrelevant since the actual sentences varied from five years and ten months to 12 years and nine months.
