Lewis Jay Davis was found in possession of a stun gun and class A drugs has been jailed following intervention by the Solicitor General, Rt Hon Michael Ellis QC MP.
The 25-year-old was arrested in a pub car park on July 10, 2020 after he was found in possession of 11 wraps of cocaine, a cannabis bud, a stun gun and more than £200 (€220) in cash.
When the police searched his home address they recovered more than £7,000 (€7,727) in cash, as well as bags of MDMA and two further stun guns.
Davis received a deferred sentence on September 25, 2020, at Bournemouth Crown Court. Following a referral to the Court of Appeal by the Solicitor General, on Wednesday, December 2, the sentence was found to be unduly lenient and has been increased to 3 years’ imprisonment, minus 37 days Davis spent on qualifying curfew.
Speaking after the hearing, the Solicitor General said: “Davis dealt class A drugs and was found in possession of dangerous weapons. It is right that the Court of Appeal has given him a custodial sentence today.”
