What Is Conspiracy To Supply Class A Drugs?

Under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971, Class A drugs include:

  • Cocaine
  • Crack cocaine
  • Heroin
  • Ecstasy/MDMA
  • Methadone
  • LSD
  • Methamphetamine/crystal meth
  • Magic mushrooms

Conspiring to supply Class A drugs involves an agreement between two or more people to sell, distribute or pass drugs to others. The authorities do not have to prove that the transaction has actually taken place, just that there is an agreement to do so.

Examples of conspiracy to supply drugs include:

  • Discussing sale and purchase of drugs
  • Collecting or delivering drugs
  • Being part of a drugs transaction
  • Allowing premises to be used in drugs transactions

If the police believe that you are involved in supplying drugs but cannot show that you were in agreement with someone else over this, they could charge you with being concerned in the supply of drugs or possession with intent to supply drugs.

These are all serious offences that carry potential prison sentences.

Conspiracy To Supply Class A Sentencing Guidelines

Sentencing guidelines for supplying or offering to supply a Class A drug or possession of a Class A drug with intent to supply it to another give a normal sentence range of between a high-level community order to 16 years’ custody. The maximum sentence is life imprisonment.

In deciding on the level of sentence, the courts will look at a range of factors, including:

  • Alleged role in the offence and whether it was leading, significant or lesser
  • The level of potential harm, generally based on the amount of the drug involved
  • Aggravating factors, such as whether there are previous convictions, whether vulnerable individuals were involved, use of weapons or violence and attempts to conceal or dispose of evidence
  • Mitigating factors, such as being coerced, no previous convictions, remorse, age or lack of maturity and the incident being isolated

We will work with you to establish what mitigating factors exist, should these be needed, and present a strong case on your behalf to secure the lowest possible sentence, should you have been convicted.

For conspiracy to supply Class B drugs sentencing guidelines for most offences range from a fine to ten years imprisonment, with a maximum sentence of 14 years for the most serious crimes.
