Sus­pended jail sen­tence

Wexford People - - NEWS -

A part-time fish­er­man was in Wex­ford Dis­trict Court to deal with a five-yearold drugs pos­ses­sion charge.

Joseph Lane (33) of 14 Han­toon Road, Wex­ford ac­cepted that he had pos­ses­sion of am­phet­a­mine for sale or sup­ply to oth­ers at Han­toon Road on a date in July of 2012. Solic­i­tor Tim Cum­mings ar­gued that, be­cause of the na­ture of his work, Lane could not com­mit to carry out com­mu­nity ser­vice.

Judge Ger­ard Haughton there­fore de­cided to sus­pend a five month jail term, once the ac­cused makes a con­tri­bu­tion of €400 to the Corn­mar­ket Project.
