Cannabis grower who made £60K has to pay back only £90!

The judge, Recorder Anna Midgley, formally ordered the confiscation of £90.42 from Brown and he was given one month to hand over the money.

However, Brown, now of Nettle rd, Bury St Edmunds, remains liable to lose the entire amount of his criminal profits if he ever comes into money in the future.

At an earlier hearing in April when Brown received a 14 months jail sentence suspended for two years for producing cannabis the court was told his wife Sarah had discovered the plants growing in the loft of their home in Wotton on Feb 11th.

When she challenged him he threatened her with a knife.

Brown pleaded guilty in April to producing cannabis and assaulting his wife on February 11.

As well as the suspended jail term he was ordered to undergo 30 rehabilitation activity requirement days, 30 programme days and 150 hours of unpaid work.

Prosecutor Chloe Giggs told the court yesterday that although Brown had benefited from £60,418.28 his only realisable assets now are £90.42.
