A 45-year-old man has been jailed for 40 months for storing drugs worth almost £ 4 m. Kevin Dallas admitted keeping the haul of cocaine, cannabis , heroin and etizolam pills at his flat in Clydebank, West Dunbartonshire. The drugs haul included £3.3m of cocaine, £124,000 of cannabis as well more than £40,000 of heroin. Police also seized 800,000 Etizolam pills valued at £409,000. The 45 year-old - who previously worked as a driver for school-children - previously pled guilty to being concerned in the supply of the drugs.

A man pleads guilty to importing 380 kilograms of cocaine, after being arrested while unloading fake bricks of it from an excavator last year. Key points: Adam Hunter, 34, has pleaded guilty to importing hundreds of kilograms of cocaine. The drugs were concealed in an excavator imported from South Africa. Hunter's co-accused, Timothy Engstrom, has pleaded not guilty and plans to fight the charges. The arm had contained 380 kilograms of cocaine, packed in 1 kilogram bricks wrapped in plastic.

Lee addressed the court, saying that he worked as a gardener and chef and is awaiting the results of an MRI he has had taken because of pain suffered from his osteoporosis.

Lee also explained to the presiding judge, John King, that he moved to Ireland many years ago to escape a heroin addiction that he developed when he was younger.

Fleming described Lee's difficult situation to the court, explaining that Lee's doctor had prescribed painkillers, presumably for his osteoporosis-related pain, but that the prescription was "of an opiate-based nature."

"He is afraid of that and so he doesn't take it," the lawyer added.

Fleming appeared to be describing Lee's fear of relapsing into heroin addiction, triggered by opiate exposure through prescribed pain killers. Lee said he was in a "Catch-22" situation.

Unlucky driver stopped for not wearing a seatbelt had $700,000 in cash

A couple who imported more than £29,000 of cannabis to the Isle of Man through the post have been jailed. Christopher Corkill and Lisa Barnett, of Marathon Road, admitted arranging to have the parcel delivered to a separate address on 28 January. The couple were arrested after a subsequent search of their home and phones found evidence of drug dealing. The court heard Corkill had been released from prison in February 2020 for previous drugs offences and was on licence at the time. The pair also pleaded guilty to attempting to possess the drug with intent to supply.

He pleaded guilty to six of the nearly three dozen charges he faced, including sex trafficking of a minor, and he admitted that he had paid at least one underage girl to have sex with him and other men . In March, it was revealed that Gaetz is under investigation for allegedly having sex with a 17-year-old girl and trafficking her across state lines. Investigators are also looking into allegations he paid women for ecstasy-fueled sex at Florida hotels after being introduced to them by Greenberg.

Instead of the opiates, Lee explained, he had been using CBD oils with "a small amount of illegal drugs," presumably referring to the nominal amount of cannabis found in his home.

Some scientific studies suggest that CBD oil is more effective at treating chronic pain when it is combined with THC in certain situations.

Fleming attempted to secure a community service arrangement for his client. However, Judge John King said, "I would not consider community service until I know he is clean."

Lee has six previous convictions on record, five of which were for possession of cannabis.

Judge King ordered probation with two random urine-analysis tests to occur later in the year.

Currently, recreational use of cannabis, categorized as an "illicit drug," is illegal in Ireland. Recently, it was been made available for limited medical use.

However, in December of 2020, possession of a small amount of cannabis for personal use was added to a list of offenses that can be dealt with outside the criminal justice system, using what's called the "adult caution system" in Ireland.

On June 30, 2008, after Epstein pleaded guilty to a state charge (one of two) of procuring for prostitution a girl below age 18,[118] he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. While most convicted sex offenders in Florida are sent to state prison, Epstein was instead housed in a private Epstein's cell door was left unlocked, and he had access to the attorney room where a television was installed for him, before he was moved to the Stockade's previously unstaffed infirmary. He worked at the office of a foundation he had created shortly before reporting to jail; he dissolved it after he had served his time.

He pleaded guilty to six of the nearly three dozen charges he faced, including sex trafficking of a minor, and he admitted that he had paid at least one underage girl to have sex with him and other men . After the hearing Greenberg was taken back to jail in handcuffs and shackles, wearing a dark inmate uniform and looking worn down. As part of his plea deal, Greenberg, a Republican who served as the tax collector in Seminole County, admitted he recruited women for commercial sex acts and paid them more than ,000 from 2016 to 2018, sometimes through online payment services like Venmo.

Under the system, some offenders, especially first-timers, won't get a criminal record.

The new law would unlikely apply to Lee, who charged for this sixth cannabis possession offense on June 19, 2020.
