Paul Rooney CoA judgment cited by CrimeLine

Apr 3, 2022

Paul Rooney was successful at the Court of Appeal last month appealing a sentence imposed for PWITS class A drugs. The judgment for the appeal has been published and recently cited by CrimeLine.

A concise judgment but one worth reading, it is a useful authority on how the category of ‘lesser role’ should be approached when sentencing PWITS cases using the 2021 guidelines.
