Three of the charges were for supply prohibited drug greater than an indictable quantity (between 100-300 pills each transaction). However, the fourth charge was much more serious. This was for supply of a prohibited drug greater than a commercial quantity (a transaction of 700 pills). The charges carried maximum sentences of 15 and 20 years in prison, respectively.
