IT is not often that we report news stories from the Court of Appeal, and most of the time these stories aren't always the top of our readers' priority lists.

But this week, there was a story that would not have been possible if it was not for Argus readers.

Drug dealer Daniel Lewis appeared for the hearing, and was re-sentenced to three years in prison.

The 31-year-old had been a drug dealer who boasted of supplying "party platters" of drugs for his mates on the posh party scene.

He lived in a plush seafront flat at Chichester Terrace in Brighton, all at the expense of his grandfather's trust fund.

From there, adult performer and glamour model Aimee Spencer was invited by him to sniff a line of cocaine "longer than a yeti's leg".

She tragically plunged from the window of the flat to her death.

While cleared of any wrongdoing over her death, the incident exposed his dark web empire to high-end clients.

Yet at Lewes Crown Court in November, Judge Christine Laing QC stepped out of sentencing guidelines because of his volunteer work and his time spent turning his life around.

He was handed a suspended prison sentence and unpaid work.

Many of you were outraged, and referred this sentence to the Attorney General for being "unduly lenient".

Had he not been from the upper echelons of society, would he have initially walked free?

You the readers felt strongly, and it was your review that led to him facing true justice. It is a victory for you, and it helps restore faith in our legal system.
