Pensioner caught with heroin in bag at prison [UK]

A PENSIONER was given a suspended sentence yesterday after she was caught with heroin in her bag at Armley Jail where her son was in prison on drug offences.
Brenda Moorcroft, 68, told police she had intended to take the two packages in to her son Steven Calvert at his request and believing they contained only cannabis.

But she said she had changed her mind when she got to the jail in Leeds and left the packages in her bag in a locker before going to the visitors room.

Nigel Wray, prosecuting, told Leeds Crown Court the prison had a drug dog on hand and when she was stopped Moorcroft immediately admitted she had left drugs in the locker. The packages both contained heroin.

Her son told officers he was being pressured in prison for £2,000 he owed dealers and was told if the drugs, worth on the street about £300-£400, were smuggled into the jail, where they would have a higher value around £2,000, his debt would be settled.

Moorcroft, of Northfields, Wetherby, admitted possession of the drug with intent to supply and was sentenced to six months in prison suspended for 12 months.

Judge Geoffrey Marson told her she was only escaping an immediate jail term because he accepted she was under significant pressure, believed the drug was cannabis and, most important, had changed her mind about taking it into the jail anyway.

Calvert, 36, who admitted conspiracy to supply the drug, was jailed for seven years with immediate effect.

The judge said Calvert had a bad record for drug offences and was currently serving a five-year sentence imposed in March for supplying heroin.

Mr Wray told the court Moorcroft said she had received calls from her son asking her to pick up clothes for him and understood it would be drugs but believed it was cannabis. She had already been cautioned in April last year for a similar offence when she was caught taking cannabis into the jail.

Graham Parkin, for Calvert, said his client deeply regretted involving his mother but was under pressure because when he was last arrested drugs were seized with him and the dealers said he owed them for that.

Alan Taylor, for Moorcroft, said she feared her son's life might be in danger and out of love for him decided to help, however misguided. She would never knowingly have taken heroin in because she had seen how it had ruined her son's life.

Wow that would never fly in America.
We don't care if she's 68, she's spending the rest of her life in prison.
