A WEST End man has been told he could be sent to jail when he returns to court next month on drugs and dud money charges.

Judge Peter Henry delivered the warning to Robert Morrison, who pleaded guilty to two cannabis and one methedrone possession with intent charges. He further pleaded guilty to possessing 20 fake £20 notes.

Morrison, 57, of Catherine Close, had also been committed for sentence at Southampton Crown Court after admitting possessing methedrone before the city magistrates. He will be sentenced on March 17.

Defence barrister Alistair Wright said he was of previous good character and asked for the probation report to consider a drug rehabilitation requirement.

Does 'previous good character' mean 'haven't been caught before'?

Yep. Annoying, but what else can be done? We can't convict someone on the grounds of hearsay.
