Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Possession of a Class A drug - Being concerned in the supply of a Class A drug - Whether sentence manifestly excessive. .
Sentence Imprisonment.Where the defendant had pleaded guilty to possession of a Class A drug and being concerned in the supply of a Class A drug and had been sentenced to 32 months' imprisonment, the sentence could not be regarded as manifestly excessive. The judge had had the opportunity of hearing the evidence through the conduct of the trial, and had had every opportunity to form his own view on full evidence as to the level of involvement of the defendant and co-defendants. It was possible that the sentence was at the severe end of the scale; however, it was quite impossible to say that it was manifestly excessive.
