GUILTY PLEA: St Albans man pleads guilty to possessing and supplying drugs

 Published on: 20th April 2022   |   By: Court Reporter   |   Category: Uncategorized

A St Albans man today (Wednesday 20)  pleaded guilty to possessing ecstasy tablets with intent to supply.

Oscar Jordan-Deeds, 31, said he bought the 69 tablets in bulk for medicinal purposes, but sold any left over to friends.

Jordan-Deeds, of Beech Road, also admitted supplying cannabis after the police found 14 packets containing a total of 504 grams on  December 9, 2019, Luton crown court heard.

Prosecutor David Baird said a proceeds of crime hearing would take place at a later date.

He said the MDMA tablets were worth about £138. The cannabis, which was found in a rucksack, was being supplied in packages to runners or street dealers.

Beta Kopel, defending, gave the judge a basis of plea, which stated he bought the pain relief, but sold any excess tablets. He did not advertise the drug for sale, she said.

Ms Kopel said the offences were over two years ago and he had not been in trouble since. She said Jordan-Deeds was “slowly but surely turning his life around.”

Judge Karen Walden-Smith adjourned sentence until 30th May for probation reports to be prepared.

She told him: “It needs to be made clear all options are. You need to be aware of the possibility, if not the likelihood of an immediate custodial sentence.”
