Sentence - Custodial sentence - Supplying a controlled Class C drug - Possessing a controlled Class C drug - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Where a defendant was sentenced to a total of 18 months' imprisonment for three offences of supplying a controlled drug of Class C, and one offence of possessing a controlled drug of Class C, the sentence was not manifestly excessive. The instant case had differed from relevant authority, in so far as the defendant had given cannabis to a 12-year-old boy on more than one occasion, which had exacerbated the behavioural problems from which the boy was already suffering.
