Entire Maskall family hauled to court for marijuana charges

Also in court, four persons including two females, one a minor and the mother of a one month old newborn were in court today facing charges for drug trafficking. Earlier today, at five am, Ladyville Police raided the home of Maskall businessman Winston Bevans and found one hundred and one grams of marijuana in twenty-nine small parcels. Bevans, his common-law wife Sherlette Miguel, twenty one year old Egbert Miguel and a seventeen year old minor were found in the home and detained. When they appeared in Court before Magistrate Adolph Lucas, Bevans pleaded guilty to drug trafficking. Since he is a first time offender, a non-custodial sentence was imposed on him and he was fined ten thousand dollars. He has until November twenty-ninth to pay or he will serve five years in prison. Charges were withdrawn against the other three persons and they were all free to go.

    I really dislike the way you worded this topic… Maskall is also a family name and viewers might get confused.
