Court of Appeal

Allen, P.; John, J.A..; Conteh, J.A.

MCCrApp & CAIS No. 227 of 2014

The Commissioner of Police

The appellant appeared Pro Se.

Mr. Eucal Bonaby, with Ms. Abigail Farrington, Counsel for respondent.

Criminal Practice and Procedure - Drugs — Sentencing — Whether the trial judge erred in imposing a four year sentence having regard to the guilty plea and the amount of drugs — Appeal allowed and sentence reduced by half.

Allen, P.

We are of the view that the 4 years sentence imposed by the learned judge was disproportionate, having regard to the amount of drugs and the fact that the appellant pleaded guilty.

We, therefore, allow the appeal, reduce the sentence to 2 years from the date of conviction, which was 25th July, 2014.
