Irishman (41) admits importing heroin


A 41-year-old Irishman has admitted smuggling heroin into the island and will be sentenced for the offence later this year.

Graham Keddie admitted importing the Class A drug in the Royal Court on Friday.

Keddie’s lawyer, Advocate Adam Harrison, indicated his client’s ‘guilty’ plea to the offence, which took place on 14 April of this year.

Crown Advocate Conrad Yates appeared for the prosecution and the Bailiff Sir William Bailhache presided over the hearing accompanied by Jurats Austin-Vautier and Sparrow.

The Class A drug importer will be sentenced before a panel of at least five Jurats who only assemble as the ‘Superior Number’ to hear the most serious of cases. 

Keddie has been remanded in custody until he is sentenced on 19 September.
