A couple who claimed they had around €28,000 worth of cannabis to manufacture their own cannabis oil to assist the man’s dying mother have received suspended sentences.
Jemma Dinnigan (35) of Skelligs Court, Waterville, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15 and Kevin Lappin (37) of Corduff Crescent, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to possession of the drugs for sale or supply on January 9, 2019.
Lappin had a previous conviction for possession of drugs, while Dinnigan had convictions for assault causing harm and theft. Lappin’s mother had been diagnosed with cancer in 2018. She has since passed away.
