Cannabis pos­ses­sion

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

POS­SESS­ING a con­tainer which held a ‘small amount’ of cannabis at Ry­land Road, Bun­clody, on Oc­to­ber 27 last has re­sulted in a fine for Stephen Lev­ing­stone of Clon­has­ton, En­nis­cor­thy.

The court heard that the de­fen­dant was stopped on the day in ques­tion and handed over the con­tainer to gar­daí. The court heard that Lev­ing­stone, who pleaded guilty to the of­fence, had two pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions - one for drugs and one for drink driv­ing.

Solic­i­tor Ca­tri­ona Walsh told the court the cannabis, for which gar­daí did not have a fixed value, was a very small amount.

She also pointed out that her client was not work­ing and had just wel­comed a new­born baby three weeks ago.

Upon hear­ing all this, Judge Haughton opted to con­vict and hand down a fine of €100.
