Sentencing - Being concerned in the supply of Class A drug - Custodial sentence - Sentence manifestly excessive.
A custodial sentence of 18 months was manifestly excessive for a defendant who had pleaded guilty to an offence of being concerned with the supply of a Class A drug as it was unsatisfactory for a young man such as the defendant who had to be regarded as someone who had indicated a strong desire to come off drugs to go back to prison for a substantial period of time shortly after his release from another sentence. Accordingly, a custodial sentence of six months would be substituted.
