REPEAT OFFENDER: Man back in court over drugs
JUST days after a Maryborough man fronted a court for drug possession, he was found with drugs.
Police officers noticed Dean Desmond Riley holding a plastic bag at a hotel on September 22.
Inside the bag was 3.6g of marijuana.
The 60-year-old cancer sufferer pleaded guilty in Maryborough Magistrates Court on Monday to drug possession.
The court heard that Riley appeared before a magistrate on September 19 - three days before this offence.
Magistrate John Smooth said Riley was being given a "last opportunity" and if he returned to court again on drug charges, he would go to jail.
Riley was fined $1200.
