[2008] EWCA Crim 118

A sentence of six months' detention in a young offenders institution for supplying cannabis to a prison inmate was not manifestly excessive; the compelling mitigation in the offender's favour convinced the sentencing judge to depart from similar authorities that imposed higher custodial sentences for similar offences, but was not sufficient to justify a suspension of that sentence.
