Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Supply of cocaine - Conspiracy to supply crack cocaine - Defendant entering written basis of plea stating offence part of course of conduct - Judge imposing consecutive sentences - Whether judge erring - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
The defendant's appeal against his concurrent sentences of two years' imprisonment in respect of the nine counts of supplying cocaine and a consecutive of four-and-a-half years in respect of one count of conspiracy to supply cocaine was allowed on the basis that the sentences were contrary to the written basis of plea and inconsistent with a Goodyear indication given earlier in the proceedings. Accordingly, the sentences of two years passed on the nine counts of supplying cocaine were ordered to run concurrently with the sentence of four-and-a-half years passed on the conspiracy count.
