Mr Shepherd told the court Moir had committed the offence to help his son, also called Michael.
He added: “He was trying to give him help and the motivation behind this was to get a little money to help him. It wasn't the right way to go about things and he accepts that it was wrong.”
Sheriff James Tierney sentenced Moir, whose address was listed in court papers as 12a Girdlestone P l a c e , Aber d e e n , to 14 months in jail.
GUILTY: Michael Moir was jailed at Aberdeen Sheriff Court after he admitted carrying drugs in his car.
