He was cleared of both charges by a jury after a five-day trial but was fined £500 after admitting unlawfully possessing 26 rounds of ammunition. The court heard that the ammunition was found in Rolph’s gun cabinet following his arrest in September.And how did it get there?
Steven Dyble for Rolph said his client had inherited the ammunition from his father and it had stopped being manufactured many years ago.And as a licensed shotgun owner - surely an ex-licensed shotgun holder now? - didn't he realise he couldn't possess it? Didn't anyone notice when they checked his gun cabinet?
Yes, far, far more questions than answers here.
