Sentencing - Conspiracy to supply Class A drug - Custodial sentence - Sentence manifestly excessive.
In the circumstances, a sentence of seven years imprisonment imposed for an offence of conspiracy to supply a class A drug was manifestly excessive. The starting point of ten years' taken by the sentencing judge was too high as one of seven years was appropriate. Taking into account the defendant's early guilty plea and successful efforts at rehabilitation, a sentence of five years' imprisonment would be substituted.
