Cumbrian man admits drugs charges

A Cumbrian man is facing a likely prison sentence after admitting supplying drugs.

Ricky John Rayson, 28, of Henry Street, Cockermouth, pleaded guilty at Carlisle Crown Court to supplying diazepam – a class C drug – and possessing it with intent to supply it.

The court heard he had started selling the drugs after becoming addicted to prescribed medicines.

After hearing that Rayson had a previous conviction for supplying drugs to a friend Judge Paul Batty QC told him that a custodial sentence was “extremely likely”.

Rayson was remanded on bail for background reports and will be sentenced on April 5. In the meantime he was put under a curfew to keep him indoors at home every night.
