Sentence - Imprisonment - Length of sentence - Conspiracy to supply Class A drugs - Co-defendants jointly charged - Disparity in sentence - Whether insufficient account taken of personal mitigation - Whether sentence manifestly excessive.
In the case of a defendant who had been convicted of two counts of conspiracy to supply Class A drugs, where there was a disparity between the defendant's and co-defendants' sentences the defendant's sentence of eight years' imprisonment would be quashed and substituted with one of five years' imprisonment. The substantial personal mitigation of the defendant, in the instant case, was taken into account when reducing the sentence.
