So, Clearly, She Has Some Standards..?

Her lawyer Amanda Johnson said Corris - who has previous convictions for fly tipping and violence - didn't abuse alcohol, take drugs or even smoke.
Oh, wait. Maybe not:
She told the court they preyed on the fact she lived alone after leaving her parents' home in the Cheshire suburb of Bowdon, near Altrincham.
In a statement she said: 'I challenged them and I was told in no uncertain terms that the farm was staying.
'I accept matters progressed to the extent that the owners of the farm told me to feed the plants and control the lighting and I did so.
'It was never suggested I would receive any gain if it was successful.'
Hahahahaha! That's the most feeble excuse I've ever heard! Who's going to believe that?
Corris was given an eight month prison sentence suspended for 12 months and was ordered to carry out 180 hours of unpaid work.
Judge Andrew Lowcock told her she had come 'very close' to going straight to prison.
He said: 'Your basis of plea is you were coerced into allowing this by threats against your family and didn't receive any financial benefit. Drugs are a curse and people who grow cannabis and help can frequently end up in prison.
'You have an explanation of apparent vulnerability but you should choose the people you associate with more carefully in the future.'
*stunned silence*

XX The yield had a potential to flood the streets with up to 2.26kg of potent skunk - which could have fetched £45,200 if it was sold for the right price.XX

Flood the streets with 2 and a quarter Kilo??? WHAT??

"If sold at the right price."

Well yes, sols at the "right price" it could be worth millions. The sentence is meaningless.

Somehow this tale rings true to me. First of all, there are some pretty evil bastards out there. Secondly, there are quite a few dozy individuals with "use me" tattooed to their foreheads. Anyway, twenty nicker a gram is way too much, that must be the influence of the new BBC HQ in Manchester.

If the parents are from Bowden, there is a fair chance that they will have connections to the right people. I'm surprised it even got to court.

@FT "...The sentence is meaningless..."

As was the one handed out by the judge.

I meant the gramatik "sentence" not the court sentence.

"Sold at the right price"... well WHAT is the "right" price?

For the buyer, or seller?

Indeed" The State loves it's 'street value' measurement, no matter how pointless.

"...twenty nicker a gram is way too much, that must be the influence of the new BBC HQ in Manchester."
