How much do they say it involves?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
my partner didn't even have a lot of money or expensive things.
In this group there are 9 people, and out of this 9 he is at the bottom of this group. Police found 2 kg of cocaine but not with him, with other people from this group.
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

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?

Thank you so much for this information.
I got one more question, he have 5 years visa, he doesn't have uk passport and he is in England already more then 4 years, is there any danger for him that they could deport him back to he's country ?
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

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.

He is from iran, they can deport him back there?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
I am from Lithuania, and we are married already, this would not help him?
Solicitor: Jo C., Barrister replied 2 years ago

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.
