    81yo convicted of drugs offences

    08jun04

    AN 81-year-old World War II veteran and his wife of 58 years were today each handed a 16-month suspended jail sentence after being convicted of drug offences.

    Perth pensioner David William Sidney Davies and his wife, Florence Gladys Davies, 77, were on Friday found guilty by a Perth District Court jury of two counts of possession of cannabis with intent to supply.
    The charges stem from a raid on their home in the southern Perth suburb of Carlisle in 2002 during which authorities found almost 19kg of cannabis hidden in a false ceiling.

    A further 300g of the drug was found in an ice-cream container under the couple's bed, while $7000 cash was found in the front seat of their car.

    The court was told the cannabis, which was commercially packaged in sealed bags, had a street value of up to $260,000.

    In sentencing the elderly pair, Judge Peter Williams said they had been convicted of a very serious offence but had "led an otherwise blameless life".

    He sentenced them to 16 months on one charge and two months on the other, but said the sentences would be served concurrently and suspended for two years.

    The maximum penalty is 10 years imprisonment or a fine of $100,000.

    The Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has six months to decide whether to have the pair deemed drug traffickers, which would result in them losing assets such as their home.

    Prosecutor Paul Dixon today indicated a further application would be made to confiscate the $7000 as proceeds of crime.

    suspended for two years? Isn't this the Judges way of saying "I'll look like a retard if I don't serve you up some jail time... but then again your old.. so just smuggle yourself out of the country asap and we'll call it even" ? Thats quite grand I think.

    Also this doesn't entirely suprise me... to make a long post short I know a couple people who have been swindled in one small way or another by the elderly. I think some of them realise that as old people, they can get away with all kinds of shit because the vast majority of society feel morally guilted into not doing anything about it...
