Drug offences – appeal against conviction and sentence

29 March 2016

Fisher Dore Lawyers

Fisher Dore appeared for Mr R, who was convicted after trial of 1 count of trafficking in the dangerous drug methylamphetamine. He was sentenced to 10 years’ imprisonment cumulative upon an 18 year term for previous conviction. Mr R appealed the conviction on the grounds that a miscarriage of justice occurred due to the errors of the trial judge.

He also sought leave to appeal against his sentence on the ground that it was manifestly excessive due to its cumulative effect. The Court was not persuaded on the conviction point. In regards to sentencing, leave to appeal was granted and the sentence was found to be manifestly excessive. Mr R’s sentence was substituted with a term of 8 years imprisonment.​
