A young Scot, caught street-dealing nine ounces of cannabis in London last summer, has received a suspended prison sentence.
Connor Joseph Claydon, 20, of Perth Road, Saint Cyrus, Dundee was sent to the Crown Court for sentencing due to the seriousness of the charge.
He had initially pleaded guilty at Camberwell Green Magistrates Court to possessing the drugs, with intent to supply, on August 3 in Lambeth.
“You have pleaded guilty to an offence that is beyond this court’s powers of sentencing,” District Judge Ann Sawetz told the first-time offender at the time.
Claydon was sent to Inner London Crown Court, where he received six months imprisonment, suspended for two years.
He was also ordered to pay £170 costs and a £115 victim surcharge.
