A man has been sent to prison after using money he received for a workplace accident to deal crack cocaine.
Andrew Holcombe of Bath, England, has been sent to jail for 18 months for dealing crack.
The 54-year-old said he bought the drugs after receiving compensation for a workplace accident. He claims he was just sharing the drugs with his friends.
Police found almost 22 grams of cocaine, weighing scales and £2,800 cash ($4,600) in Holcombe’s house.
His lawyer claims Holcombe turned to cocaine after suffering a serious workplace accident and becoming listless when he was laid up for six weeks.
He’d received £9,300 ($15,350) for the workplace accident.
