Drug supply jail sentence reduced on appeal in district court

A former Shoalhaven man who appealed the severity of his sentence over drug supply charges has had his sentence reduced to 10 months.

Colin David Ingram, 45, now of Blacktown, was sentenced to 12 months’ jail from April 24, with a non-parole period of eight months in Nowra Local Court.

His appeal in Nowra District Court before Judge Warwick Hunt saw that sentence reduced to 10-months with a non-parole period of six months.

Ingram had pleaded guilty to two charges of supplying a prohibited drug, after being caught by Strike Force Arctic.

Court papers revealed Ingram twice supplied methylamphetamine or ice in Nowra in May last year.

On both occasions the buyer, a woman known to police, arranged to buy the drugs through two other people, with Ingram making the delivery in the Nowra CBD on a BMX pushbike.

On May 17 he delivered 0.27g of ice for $250 to the woman in Harry Sawkins Park, while on May 25 he supplied 0.6 of a gram of the drug for $100 to the Woolworths Car Park.

Ingram also pleaded guilty to two counts of shoplifting at Coles Nowra on April 24 this year, which was also taken into account in his sentencing.
