A Judge has got a little teary eyed at having to lock up some nice looking,Â impeccableÂ DRUG DEALERS:
Two men with “impeccable backgrounds” have been jailed for running a commercial cannabis-growing ring.
Paul David Jensen and Jaak Roy Karu have been sentenced to three years in prison after police discovered hundreds of plants hidden in three homes in suburban Auckland.
The pair, both 43, pleaded guilty to cultivating, possessing for supply and selling the Class-C drug at a level of sophistication that Judge Mary Beth Sharp said left her with no choice but to impose jail time.
“It never gives a judge any pleasure to sentence people to imprisonment, let alone men of your age with impeccable backgrounds and all the family and community support that is available, but I regret that is my job.”
