451.Section 110 of the Sentencing Act requires an adult convicted of a third class A drug trafficking offence to be sentenced to at least seven years’ imprisonment unless there are particular circumstances which would make this unjust. Subject to that exception, this section requires the Court Martial to impose such a sentence where it convicts an adult of a criminal conduct offence and section 110 of the Sentencing Act would apply if he were convicted by a civilian court of the corresponding offence.
