R v Hartwell

Sentence – Drug offence. On a reference by the Criminal Cases Review Commission, the Court of Appeal, Criminal Division, held that, following concessions made by the prosecution in respect of the level of the defendant's involvement, that it could no longer rely on some of the assertions which had been put forward at the time of sentencing, a term of 14-years-and-8-months' imprisonment for conspiracy to supply cocaine would be reduced to one of 10 years' imprisonment.
