Arsonist to be sentenced in December

Mon, 27 Oct 2014

Psychiatric reports have to be compiled before a Douglas man will be sentenced for arson and supplying drugs to a prisoner.

53-year-old Graham Johnson appeared before the Court of General Gaol Delivery at the end of last week.

He's already pleaded guilty to causing a fire at the Grainagh Court mental health facility in June and a charge of introducing tobacco to the prison on September 13th.

On the same day Mr Johnson also unlawfully supplied three different types of prescription medication to an inmate which were concealed in a Kinder Egg.

Social enquiry and mental health reports have been requested before sentencing which is due to take place on December 17th.

Mr Johnson has been remanded in prison - there was no application for bail.
