Drug dealer’s weight helps keep him out of jail

Meanwhile, it appears an accused drug dealer escaped going to jail because of his weight. This morning when police raided the Castle Street home of twenty-nine year old Llewellyn “Bigga” Meighan, they found three grams of crack cocaine and two bags of weed. Because of the find, police slapped Meighan with a drug trafficking charge and two counts of possession. But when the accused was brought to court he used his weight, a whopping six hundred pounds, as part of his defence, contending that because of his size he has been unable to work. To help his situation, Meighan decided to plead guilty to the lesser charge of Trafficking, Possession Simplicitor, and the two counts of Possession. After weighing her mind, Magistrate Sharon Frazer opted to fine Meighan a total of two thousand two hundred and fifty dollars for all charges. If he does not produce the money, Meighan will have to serve a year and seven months behind bars.
