Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Dishonesty - Assisting drug dealers to profit from their crimes - Whether insufficient regard had to defendant's personal mitigation - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
Sentence Imprisonment. Where the defendant had been convicted of five offences of dishonesty for mortgage fraud, benefit fraud and removal of criminal property and had been sentenced to four years and ten months' imprisonment, the sentence was manifestly excessive and would be reduced to three years and two months' imprisonment. Although the instant offence had been offending which had assisted drug dealers to profit from their crimes, insufficient account had been taken of the defendant's personal mitigation; therefore, a reduction in sentence had to be given.
