The Solicitor General has requested a detailed report on the sentencing of the hitand-run killer of Birmingham University student Abigail Craen before deciding whether to appeal.

Jaswinder Singh, of Ward End, Birmingham, was jailed for 18 months for causing the death of 20-year-old Abigail by dangerous driving.

He pleaded guilty in January to dangerous driving, failing to stop after an accident, failing to report an accident and driving without insurance.

Judge Daniel Pearce-Higgins sentenced Singh, who was also banned from driving for four years, at Birmingham Crown Court on Monday.

The report for the Solicitor General, Mike O'Brien, sets out the court case proceedings along with relevant sentencing guidelines, presentence reports, and the mitigating and aggravating factors which affected the term handed out.

A spokesman for West Midlands CPS said: "Because the Solicitor General is so interested in this case, whatever the decision we make on whether there are grounds for an appeal, either way we will send the report to him because he has requested it."

The Solicitor General has 28 days from the day Singh was sentenced to decide whether there are grounds for an application to the Court of Appeal.
