Judge praises drug dealer: 'It's a good business model'

A QUEENSLAND Supreme Court judge has praised a drug dealer for his savvy business skills in running a methamphetamine operation.

Justice Ann Lyons yesterday told Brodie Gary Satterley that "it obviously wasn't the best business, but it's a good business model".

The court heard that while ­dealing methamphetamine, he gave price guides, charged interest on debts and gave discounts and refunds in response to complaints.

He also sought customer feedback, provided utensils, advertised he was dealing a high-quality product and had business strategy meetings.

Justice Lyons sentenced the 20-year-old to three years' jail with immediate parole, and encouraged him to starting using his talents for good instead of evil.
