Have your say

A YOUNG man was given a four-month suspended jail sentence at the local Magistrates Court for possessing herbal cannabis.

Jordan Wilson (19), of Tulach Way, Magherafelt, was said by a PPS lawyer to have had around 85 grams of the drug, which would make 400 cigarettes with a street value of between £870 and £1,700.

District Judge Des Perry warned Wilson to be “very, very careful” over the next 12 months.
