A Suffolk woman accused of possessing heroin and cocaine with intent to supply has been warned to expect an immediate prison sentence when she is sentenced next month.
Before Ipswich Crown Court today was Sarah Ryan, 47, of Mill Lane, Exning, who admitted possessing cocaine and heroin with intent to supply and driving with the level of drugs in her system above the prescribed limit.
Adjourning sentence for a pre-sentence report Recorder Mary Loram said although she was asking the probation service to prepare a report on Ryan she shouldn’t expect anything other than an immediate prison sentence of potentially some length.
She said Ryan had a previous conviction for dealing Class A drugs.
The judge ordered that an interim driving ban should continue until the sentencing hearing on March 16.
