AN alleged drugs trafficker is yet to face court, but this morning, three of his accused suppliers were sentenced after pleading guilty to supplying methamphetamines, ecstasy and cannabis to Jason Robert Ryan.

Two of the men were behind bars last night, but after a lengthy period of rehabilitation since his release from jail in 2000, Stephen Harold Barnham was thrown a lifeline by Supreme Court Justice, Duncan McMeekin. 

Barnham was given a three-year sentence, wholly suspended for four years.
