$1500 drug fine
LAWRENCE James Riley, 47, of North Isis, was convicted and fined $1500 in the Childers Magistrate Court after he was caught with 2.5grams of marijuana. The court heard Riley claimed he used the drug as a form of self-medication. Magistrate Gary Finger warned Riley if he came before the courts again for a drug-related offence, he would be heading to prison. “Don’t come back here again because you won’t like the result,” Mr Finger said.
