Practice and Procedure

R v EVANS & 9 ORS (2005)

PUBLISHED October 5, 2005

As it had not been expressly stated in R v Afonso (2004) EWCA Crim 2342 the instant court made clear that the sentence level indicated of two to two-and-a-half years' imprisonment for the group identified in Afonso was intended for those with no criminal record. Those with significant criminal records, even without prior involvement with drugs, did not have the mitigating factor of good character that was material to the sentencing process.
