ONE of the Leeton residents charged during Operation Coglan last year has been sentenced in Griffith District Court.
Weena Joy Glennie was sentenced last Monday before Judge Mark Marien on the charge of supplying prohibited drugs on an ongoing basis.
Ms Glennie was sentenced to 18 months in prison, with a non-parole period of nine months.
The prison term has been back-dated to May 13 this year, with Ms Glennie eligible for parole on February 12 next year. Ms Glennie is already serving time in jail after she was found guilty of two counts of larceny in July.
She was charged last year after stealing a $700 toolbox from Repco Griffith on March 21, 2011 and stealing $3000 worth of tools from Bunnings in Griffith on June 28 last year.
In a letter to the magistrate, Ms Glennie said she was ashamed of her actions and had committed the crimes as she was addicted to drugs and had lost her job and house as a result of her addiction.
She was sentenced to two months’ jail for each offence, which are being served concurrently.
ANOTHER sentencing hearing for a Leeton man who allegedly set fire to a unit in Valencia Street almost a year ago has been adjourned.
Mike Phillip Wallace appeared in Griffith District Court last Tuesday before Judge Mark Martien, but the matter has been adjourned for sentencing to the Sydney District Court on October 3.
Mr Wallace was charged following an incident where he allegedly set fire to his neighbour’s curtains after an altercation.
He then left the unit, but returned a short time later to drag his neighbour to safety.
Mr Wallace will be sentenced on the charges of destroying property with intent to endanger life, maliciously damaging property by fire and custody of a bladed implement.
