Judge says woman is ‘well shot of’ man described as ‘bad influence’

Ballymena Court

A judge said a woman, caught with cannabis, was “well shot of” a man who was described by a defence solicitor as a bad influence on her.

The comment by District Judge Peter King came at Ballymena Magistrates Court where Kerrie Paige McCullough (26), of Galgorm Road, Ballymena, was fined £150 in connection with possessing the Class B drug on July 19 this year.

A prosecutor said police responded to a disturbance and the defendant then informed officers she had a small amount of cannabis.

The defence solicitor said the defendant is now back living with her parents having “split up” with her boyfriend.

The court heard McCullough had a number of previous convictions but none for drugs.
