Drug dealer's last chance to reform
A MONTPELIER man who admitted drug dealing six months after a police raid on his flat failed to link him to the crime has been given a "last chance" to reform by a judge.
Bristol Crown Court heard Jonathan Raven was out when police searched his flat in Ashley Road and found heroin, crack cocaine, digital scales and plastic deal bags in April last year.
They could not link him to the drugs but six months later he confessed to distributing them for his dealer, having had a drug habit for 20 years.
Raven, 37, pleaded guilty to possession with intent to supply yesterday.

Handing him a two year community order with nine months drugs rehabilitation, Judge Martin Picton told him he was avoiding jail because he confessed.
The judge said: "I'm taking a chance with you.
"It is probably the last chance you'll get. If it goes wrong it will be a long time. Get it?"
