In an unsuccessful appeal against conviction and sentence for offences of supplying Class A drugs, false imprisonment and rape, the fresh evidence presented before the Court of Appeal failed to render the conviction unsafe. Having had regard to the circumstances surrounding the offences, a total sentence of 13 years' imprisonment was neither manifestly excessive nor wrong in principle, and accordingly, that appeal also failed.
