Drug addict jailed after being found with cannabis while serving suspended sentence

 

Drug addict jailed after being found with cannabis while serving suspended sentence


An addict who was spared prison for a previous drug offence was found in possession of cannabis just two months later - while serving a suspended sentence.


Derbyshire police stormed Sean Emmerson’s home in November last year and found more than 20g of cannabis, worth a street value of £150 to £200, Derby Crown Court heard.


He was serving a suspended sentence after admitting being in possession of class A and B drugs with intent to supply in September.


Emmerson, 25, has now been jailed for a 15 months and shouted “tell the kids I love them” as he was taken to the court cells.


Prosecuting, Almas Ben-Aribia said police executed a warrant his address in Belfield Road, Swadlincote, on November 2.


Emmerson, who pleaded guilty to possessing a class B drug, told officers the cannabis was for personal use rather than to sell.


He has previous convictions for being in possession of cocaine and cannabis, as well as dangerous driving, the court was told.


In mitigation, Anthony Cartin said no class A drugs were found at the address and Emmerson had sought help to tackle his addiction.


However, he has been using cannabis since the age of 13 due to a “traumatic childhood” and this is something which “cannot be addressed overnight.


He said Emmerson has halved the amount of cannabis he smokes, adding: “What police expected to find and what they found at the address were very different”.


Emmerson has a six-year-old daughter with cerebral palsy but social services are satisfied with the wellbeing of his children as he does not smoke inside the house.


He lost his job at B&Q following a drug test and currently does not work.


Sentencing, Nirmal Shant QC said: “The last time we met I explained that the suspended sentence was a chance that possibly you didn’t deserve.


“You were warned that if you breached the suspended sentence you could face jail.”


Emmerson was jailed for 15 months for breaching the suspended sentence and six months for the latest offence, which is to be served concurrently.

It is , and will become, more common.

A mate of mine lost her job with a German supermarket chain last year.

And I'm in Ireland FFS.

She'd been out sick for 6 weeks and was "randomly" tested the day she returned to work.

Positive for Cannabis (second time) and MDMA.

They said the Mandy was the problem!!

You'd think it would be compulsory to have a smoke if you had to work at B&Q.

Misread report, what still stands is that he was only two months into a suspended sentence so it was obvious what was going to happen. 

 

So only 6 months for the weed, and 15 for breaching his suspended sentence, and that means he'll likely have a rather long rap sheet which will also be considered.
