8:00am Wednesday 9th October 2013 in News
A hardworking family carer has been spared an immediate jail sentence for his second offence of producing cannabis.
Afzal, 30, of Clifton Villas, Manningham, had a cannabis grinder, fertiliser, and 400 dealer bags. He pleaded guilty to production of cannabis on March 8.
Afzal had a previous conviction for cultivating cannabis dating from 2009.
His solicitor advocate, Anne-Marie Hutton, said he used cannabis at night after caring for members of his family. He had worked hard on the house renovation and qualified as an electrician.
Judge Jonathan Durham Hall QC sentenced Afzal to ten months’ imprisonment, suspended for two years, with 120 hours of unpaid work and £535 costs.
