Following a four week trial at Kingston Crown Court the Defendant Mc Nestrie was convicted. Ann Mulligan successfully persuaded the sentencing judge to sentence the Defendant on the basis that he occupied a significant not leading role in the drugs conspiracy. His sentence was therefore less than would otherwise have been the case. The learned judge indicated that he had never dealt with a case involving the supply of Class A drugs on such a vast scale before. It was conceded that the quantity of drugs was so massive that the case fell outside the Sentencing Council’s Drug Offences Definitive Guideline.
