Judge tells relieved Sheffield drug offender he is not going to jail
A judge has told a drug offender who admitted possessing cannabis with intent to supply he will not be going into custody.
Sheffield Crown Court heard on November 26 how Kavan Riley, aged 20, of Silkstone Road, Frecheville, pleaded guilty to possessing the class B drug in Sheffield with intent to supply.
Riley had previously pleaded guilty at Sheffield Magistrates’ Court on October 29 to dangerous driving in Sheffield and to driving without a licence and insurance. All the offences were committed on January 24.
Rebecca Stevens, defending, said Riley may have psychological issues. Some of the cannabis had been for him, she said, and some was to be sold to friends.
Judge Sarah Wright adjourned the case to consider a probation report before sentencing on January 8.
She told Riley if he keeps out of trouble he will not be going into custody.
