A KENDAL man has been warned prison is “almost inevitable” after he admitted a commercial class A drug dealing crime.
Police went to the home of 36-year-old Dawid Lisowski to execute a warrant on Friday, 13th March this year. Ecstasy tablets and a quantity of cannabis were recovered during a search.
At Carlisle Crown Court this morning (FRI), Lisowski pleaded guilty to two offences – possessing class A ecstasy and class B cannabis, both with intent to supply, on that date.
The judge, Recorder Mark Rhind, was told Lisowski, of Aynam Road, Kendal, had submitted a formal basis for his admissions. This will be considered by the prosecution in due course after the hearing was adjourned for the preparation of a probation service pre-sentence report looking into the defendant’s background.
“He is of good character,” his lawyer, Chris Evans, told the court. “He has always been employed.” Positive references would also be produced to show work done by Lisowski in relation to his own drugs misuse.
Lisowski was granted bail and is due to receive his punishment at the crown court on December 18. “You have admitted commercial dealing in a class A drug,” said Recorder Rhind. “It is almost inevitable there will be an immediate custodial sentence.”
However, the judge acknowledged Lisowski had been frank with the court, never been in trouble before, and would benefit from the “best mitigation possible” before being sentenced.
