Halliday appeared at Southend Magistrates’ Court and admitted possessing quantities of cocaine, heroin and methadone and using threatening behaviour as she argued with her former partner in Guildford Road, Southend, on September 24 last year.Mitigation will be good, I’m sure.
A court heard Dionne Halliday, 26, was turning her life around for the sake of her son and unborn child.Oh, here it comes..
The single mother…has since moved to Meadow Road, Barking, in a bid to turn her back on her old lifestyle.Brilliant idea! There’s no drugs in Barking, or drug addicts!
Helen Walsh, mitigating, said: “The last few months have been very stressful for Miss Halliday, who had been in an abusive relationship for eight months. It culminated in, not long before Christmas, her former partner holding her hostage for nine days.”Yes, I too believe that she was just ‘holding them for a friend’. Perhaps I should be a magistrate?
Mrs Walsh added: “The drugs were in her possession, but she didn’t intend to use them. She felt that she had to look after them for her partner at the time.”
