Jim Sturman QC in successful appeal against sentence for supply of Class A Drugs

Jim Sturman QC acted for X in a successful appeal against a sentence of 34 months for the supply of Class A and Class B drugs. The sentence was reduced to 24 months on the basis that the Judge fixed the starting point too high, gave insufficient weight to the mitigation before applying the appropriate discount for a guilty plea, and also gave insufficient discount for the impact of Covid-19 on the particular appellant’s time in prison.
