Man set to change drug plea

A Lakenheath man is to ask a court to allow him to change his plea of guilty to the production of an illegal drug.

Keith Jones, 56, of Barr Drive, appeared on Wednesday at Ipswich Crown Court where he had been due to be sentenced.

Jones, representing himself, told Judge Rupert Overbury that he wanted to apply to change his guilty plea to one of not guilty.

Judge Overbury told Jones that he would be given two weeks to produce details of why he believed the change should be allowed and the issue is expected to be decided at a hearing next month.

Jones is charged with production of a class B drug, cannabis on July 17 last year. Jones was granted unconditional bail until his next court appearance.
