Suspended sentence given for the supply of cocaine, ketamine and cannabis: Celine Kart defends

The case was reported on here – https://www.yorkshireeveningpost.co.uk/news/crime/leeds-student-with-bright-future-handed-out-business-cards-advertising-cocaine-and-ketamine-for-sale-4114783

 

Mitigating, Celine Kart said his own dependency on drugs had played a significant part in his latest offending. 

She said: “There was a large amount of debt that he ran up due to his addiction. No financial gain was ever recovered. This is not a classic case of street dealing. He was a full-time student of finance and was a high-performing student, but he has only himself to blame for putting that in jeopardy.” 

He has been held on remand at HMP Doncaster since his arrest which Miss Kart said had been a “wake-up call” and he has since come off drugs.’
