CRIMINAL APPEAL NO 193 OF 1987
The appellant was convicted for possessing cannabis sativa and sentenced to 18 months imprisonment. As he admitted the charge this is in effect an appeal against the sentence only. In sentencing the appellant the magistrate took into his consideration the fact that appellant was a Kanu Youth Winger from whom a responsible conduct was expected. I find no fault with that. The sentence is not excessive bearing in mind the gravity of the charge.
Appeal is dismissed.
