Cocaine addict asks for help in court
A man on a drug charge told the court that he is seeking to help for his addiction to cocaine when he appeared in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court on Wednesday.
Alvin Brown, who was arrested with less than an ounce of cocaine, pleaded guilty to possession of cocaine.
The 52-year-old told Senior Resident Magistrate Judith Pusey that he intends to stop usage of the illegal substance.
Brown, who previously appeared before Pusey, said he wants help for his addiction.
The accused denied using his income from being a cabinet maker to buy cocaine, but Pusey appeared to not buy his story.
RM Pusey, however, told Brown that she would assist him in going into therapy if she could speak with his relatives and if they are willing to help in the process.
The accused will return to court on February 22.
