Man, 52, admits growing drugs after serving life sentence

First published in News

A man who grew cannabis in his home had struggled to adjust to his freedom after serving more than 20 years in prison for the killing of three members of his family.

Bradford Crown Court heard yesterday 52-year-old Paul Teed had had difficulties adjusting to life after his release on licence.

Prosecutor Dale Brook said police attended Teed’s home in Providence Row, Undercliffe, Bradford, on February 14 this year and he immediately admitted growing cannabis. Officers found 11 fully-grown plants and lighting and ventilation for cultivation of the drug. The electricity had been bypassed since September.

The defendant made full admissions to police and pleaded guilty at the first opportunity to possessing cannabis with intent to supply, being concerned in the production of cannabis and abstracting electricity.

Mr Brook said Teed had been recalled on licence and that case was not likely to be reviewed before the summer.

Teed was jailed for life for killing his father, George, his father’s wife Hilda, and his half-brother David in Shoreham, Sussex, in 1985.
