Increased sentence for drug offences

The Court of Appeal's increased the jail sentence for a Mildura man sentenced for drug offences.

The 53-year-old was jailed in April for six years with a minimum of four.

However, the DPP appealed the decision arguing it was manifestly inadequate, with the Court of Appeal on Friday handing down the decision to increase the sentence to ten years with a minimum of seven.
