Drug case is ad­journed

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

A drugs pos­ses­sion charge brought against Michelle Gre­gan (28) from Kil­l­veny, Ti­na­hely, was not fi­nalised when she came be­fore the District Court in Gorey.

Judge Ger­ard Haughton learned that €20 worth of cannabis was seized one night from Ms Gre­gan at Hol­ly­fort Road in Gorey dur­ing April.

The court heard last Thurs­day that the ac­cused had two pre­vi­ous con­vic­tions on her record of a sim­i­lar na­ture.

So­lic­i­tor John O’Dono­van said that his client had suf­fered tragedy in her life.

The judge ad­journed the case to al­low for the prepa­ra­tion of a pro­ba­tion re­port.

He re­as­sured Ms Gre­gan by say­ing that he had no in­ten­tion of im­pos­ing a jail sen­tence.

‘What she needs is help, not pun­ish­ment,’ he said.
