R v (1) ANJ (2) RN (2011)

PUBLISHED May 13, 2011

[2011] EWCA Crim 1392

Sentences of two years and eight months' detention and four years' detention imposed on two young offenders, aged 17 and 16 respectively, for possession of Class A drugs with intent to supply were neither manifestly excessive nor wrong in principle. The imposition of custodial sentences was entirely proper and appropriate discounts had been given in each case to take into account the offenders' ages.
