Sentence - Custodial sentence - Seriousness of offence - Conspiracy to supply Class A drugs - Possession of prohibited firearms - Possession of ammunition - Conversion of criminal property - Whether totality of sentence manifestly excessive.
A total sentence of 13 years' imprisonment was not manifestly excessive, where the defendant had pleaded guilty to at the earliest opportunity to 11 offences of converting criminal property; conspiracy to supply a Class A drug, namely heroin; conspiracy to supply a Class A drug, namely cocaine; two offences of possession of prohibited firearms; and an offence of possession of ammunition. The judge had been perfectly entitled to pass consecutive terms for the money laundering offences, and had he not done so, the terms of the six years' imprisonment for the conspiracies to supply Class A drugs would indeed have been lenient and out of the bracket for that appropriate at that level of offending.
