Court of Appeal – Successful Appeal Against Sentence for Dutch Lorry Driver
A Dutch lorry driver had pleaded guilty to the importation of 12 kilograms of cocaine. Harry Bowyer argued that the sentence was too high as the Judge had taken too high a starting point in calculating sentence and had failed to take significant mitigation properly into account. The Court of Appeal agreed, the appeal was allowed and the sentence was reduced accordingly.
