Drugs charge

Bray People - - News -

UN­EM­PLOYED mu­si­cian Ryan Higgs from 33 Heatherview, Grey­stones was one of three men be­fore En­nis­cor­thy District Court last week charged with pos­ses­sion of cannabis.

The 25-year-old was found with a reefer by Garda Cor­mac Sheri­dan while at­tend­ing a fes­ti­val at Hunt­ing­don Cas­tle in Clone­gal on Au­gust 17. He was with friends at the event and the Garda was sat­is­fied that the drug, a very small amount ac­cord­ing to so­lic­i­tor June O’Han­lon, was for his own use.

Ms. O’Han­lon asked Judge Don­n­chadh O Buachalla to spare her client a crim­i­nal con­vic­tion. She re­vealed that Higgs was in a band that hoped to travel to the United States. The ac­cused was al­lowed the ben­e­fit of the Pro­ba­tion Act and told to pay €200 to the Garda Benev­o­lent Fund.
