Sentence Imprisonment. Where the defendant was sentenced to a total of ten years' imprisonment in respect of, inter alia, an offence of possession of cocaine with intent to supply and two offences of possessing a firearm when prohibited from doing so, the court held that, in all the circumstances, those sentences were manifestly excessive. Accordingly, those sentences were quashed and substituted with sentences making a total of seven years' imprisonment.
