A family we know very well & was brought up with but lost ties in the last ten years have had there severance pay yesterday, This guy was a known dealer for years he was/is a bully and people all over feared him and his men!
what amazes me is that the named man and who's pic you can see on this story was living in his parents farm which they signed over to him was worth WELL over a million pounds? so why deal if you dont need the money?
apparently his solicitor told him yesterday before the court that IF he was to get prison not to expect more than 6 months! How very wrong he was..
The trail lasted over two years and does anyone know if he would have to pay the court costs & what sort of figure would be a realistic one.?
WELL DONE to judge Mettyear justice has been done!
Uboat, the problem with farms nowadays is that most are no longer a viable enterprise, hence people using them for other forms of activity, mergers or selling to developers.
The police tend to look at old farm buildings and derelict factory buildings more so nowadays, because they have become fully aware that illegal activities might well be taking place from these type of locations.
In this particular case, the family had possibly decided that turning over the property to their son might save some inheritance taxes. If the CPS decide to proceed further, then that move of transfer might become a chalice of death for the farm and the innocent people involved.
