Millom woman to be sentenced by judge for cannabis and criminal property crimes

[A] MILLOM woman will be sentenced next month for committing a drugs supply offence and possessing criminal cash.

Susan Maxwell, 45, appeared at Carlisle Crown Court today (FRI).

During a short hearing before Judge Barbara Forrester, Maxwell pleaded guilty to possessing criminal property between October 21 and 24 last year. She had admitted possessing class B cannabis, with intent to supply, during a previous court appearance.

However, a dispute over the exact sum of criminal cash found in Maxwell’s possession means a further court hearing is required before she can be sentenced.

Maxwell claims just £3,000 of a total £8,105 found at an address in Millom represented the proceeds of criminal conduct.

However, CPS lawyer Beccy McGregor told the court that assertion was not accepted by the prosecution.

A hearing at the crown court in mid-November – at which evidence will be heard – will allow a judge to determine the extent of Maxwell’s offending. She will then be sentenced for her two crimes.

In the meantime Maxwell, of Wellington Street, Millom, was granted unconditional bail by Judge Forrester.
