Hello so to confirm - what exactly did he admit to?
Does he have any previous for anything?
Does he have previous for possession?
Is this heroin?
How much do they say it involves?
Ok. Proceeding on the basis that they accept it is street dealing then it will be category three.
I would imagine they are saying significant role. He doesn't have a leading role if there were others involved who were directly his actions but it isn't lesser role.
That would mean the starting point is four and a half years and the range is three and a half to seven years.
Those guidelines are for a man of good character pleading not guilty. A guilty plea would attract a reduction of one third and he would only serve half in custody.
However, I'm afraid PWITS of class A does attract custodial sentences.
Sorry but I can only give you truthful information.
Can I clarify anything for you?
Yes, there is. It is not just a danger. They will do that if he gets more than 12 months.He can appeal on human rights grounds but it is getting hard to win.
Yes. they can and they will.
You can make an application to avoid deportation on the grounds of the human right to a family life but it is not likely to succeed I'm afraid.
