Caught holding cannabis COVID-19 house party in Carron
Louise Quigley broke coronavirus restriction rules and drugs laws when she held an illegal gathering at her home during lockdown.
Appearing at Falkirk Sheriff Court last Thursday, Quigley (37) had admitted breaching COVID-19 regulations and possessing class B drug cannabis at her River Street, Carron home on November 14 last year.
Simon Hutchison, defence solicitor, told the court Quigley was making good inroads into the community payback order, which ends on May 8, she received as punishment for her crimes and only had seven hours of her unpaid work left to complete.
He added: “It’s quite a feat for someone from her background to have got rid of all those unpaid work hours. She’s done pretty well in the last wee while to stay out of trouble.”
Sheriff Derek Livingston agreed, adding: “There was a period when we were seeing her in court every second day.”
He placed Quigley on a supervised community payback order for two years.
