Fine for ice

Whitsunday Times - - PROSERPINE MAGISTRATE’S COURT -

A MAN caught with 0.2 grams of methy­lam­phetamine has been fined $500.

Michael Joseph Wills, 31, was stopped on Shute Har­bour Rd, Can­non­vale, on Oc­to­ber 17 and the drugs were found in his car in a small clipseal bag.

Duty lawyer An­toinette Mor­ton said he was cur­rently un­em­ployed but was try­ing to get his life back on track for the sake of his two chil­dren who were in his sole care.

In sen­tenc­ing him, Mag­is­trate Haydn St­jern­qvist said Wills should think care­fully be­fore of­fend­ing again as the chil­dren could be taken away.
