Indeterminate Sentence Following Flight and IPP from Court
Timothy Brennand prosecuted Andrew Moran at Liverpool Crown Court. Mr Moran, of Salford, had escaped from court in 2009 while on trial for armed robbery.
He was re-arrested in Spain in May 2013.
Mr Moran received an indeterminate sentence and was imprisoned for public protection (IPP) by Judge Norman Wright, the same judge whom he had fled from in 2009. He cannot apply to the parole board until he has served eight years and 236 days and even then he must prove that he is no longer a threat to the public.
The case received nationwide news coverage including:
Mr Brennand’s prosecution arguments were quoted heavily in the Manchester Evening News.
