What did they get for the cannabis matter?
Was that simple possession?
The problem with this is that this is street dealing and so falls automatically into category three.
If these were TPO officers then they may even be saying it is more serious than that.
Usually the Court says that any street dealing is significant role and falls within category three and, of course, cocaine is a class A drug.
That would mean the starting point is four and a half years I'm afraid.
If you can get the Judge to reduce it to category four the starting point would be three and a half.
The fact that they are very young and one was a youth at the time of the offending would lead to a slight reduction but not enough to avoid custody I'm afraid.
There would be a reduction for a guilty plea however of one third if the plea is entered early.
I'm very sorry but PWITs class A attracts high sentences.
Can I clarify anything for you?
