Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Possessing a Class B drug - Two years' imprisonment - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
The defendant's appeal against a sentence of two years' imprisonment following his plea of guilty of possessing a Class B drug, namely amphetamine, would be allowed. Taking into account all the mitigating factors and the authority which also applied to a case of possessing a Class B drug, the sentence was manifestly excessive. The correct sentence, in all the circumstances, was nine months' imprisonment.
