84 Year Old Drug Dealer Spared Jail

An 84-year-old man, who was caught with eight wraps of cocaine, has escaped a jail sentence because of his age. "You should be going to prison today," Judge John Phipps told the pensioner, of Tyldesley, at Liverpool Crown Court. Disabled Unsworth, who walks with a stick, admitted possession of a class A drug with intent to supply. He was ordered to wear an electronic tag with a 21:00 to 07:00 curfew for six months and to attend a 10-day course run by the probation service. "Because of your age and your state of health I am going to step back," said the judge. Unsworth was arrested after a police community support officer (PCSO) saw two known drug users getting out of his car.
