R v NEIL STUBBS (2013)

PUBLISHED June 21, 2013

[2013] EWCA Crim 1199

A total sentence of six years' imprisonment, imposed following pleas of guilty to two offences of possession of cocaine with intent to supply, was reduced to four-and-a-half years. The sentencing judge had not shown sufficient regard for the principle of totality and had given insufficient credit for the pleas.
