What is the quantum of time for an increase in the length of a person's sentence?

British Columbia, Canada


The following excerpt is from R. v. Learn, 2015 BCSC 815 (CanLII):

Where there is an increase to be imposed there are generally two broad categories of cases, 12 to 15 years, and 16 to 20 years. As I have said, the lengthier group is reserved for those cases at the highest order or moral culpability or dangerousness: Bennight at para. 14 and R v. Cerra 2004 BCCA 594 at paras.17-26.
