Workington men sentenced for cannabis supply crime

[T]WO men who teamed up to supply cannabis have been handed jail sentences by a judge.

Nathan John Roper, 22, was sent straight to prison while his 23-year-old partner-in-crime Jordan Lee Pattinson received a suspended term at Carlisle Crown Court.

The pair were punished for their roles in criminal activity which came to light last year as police seized cannabis from two Workington addresses.

Evidence gathered by officers revealed Roper and Pattinson, both of Mossbay Road, Workington, were involved in a “considerable” illegal supply trade.

The men each pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiracy to supply the class B drug – from mid-June to mid-August, 2016. Roper also admitted being concerned in cannabis supply on March 20 last year following a further cannabis seizure outside of Cumbria.

Judge Barbara Forrester heard the men were sorry for their respective wrongdoing. She handed Roper an immediate 20-month prison term, while Pattinson’s eight-month jail sentence was suspended for a year.

Pattinson was also ordered to complete 120 hours’ unpaid work, a three-month night-time curfew and a rehabilitation requirement.
