Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

A 41-YEAR-OLD Ferns man who pleaded guilty to two drugs-re­lated of­fences has had sen­tence ad­journed to al­low for the prepa­ra­tion of a pro­ba­tion and wel­fare re­port.

Si­mon As­cot, of Craan, Ferns, En­nis­cor­thy, pleaded guilty be­fore Wex­ford Cir­cuit Crim­i­nal Court to the pos­ses­sion of cannabis herb at Craan, Ferns, on March 28, 2017. He ALSO pleaded guilty to the cul­ti­va­tion of cannabis plants at Craan, Ferns.

De­fence Coun­sel Ms Rosario Boyle said As­cot was some­what de­pen­dent on cannabis. He is presently at­tend­ing a drugs coun­sel­lor and seems to be do­ing quite well. The de­fen­dant had five cannabis plants at his home and Ms Boyle said she would be urg­ing the court not to im­pose a prison sen­tence. Ms Boyle re­quested an ad­journ­ment for the preper­a­tion of a pro­ba­tion and wel­fare re­port.

Judge Cormac Quinn agreed to the re­quest and ad­journed un­til June 26.
