    A Man dropped 56 Ecstasy tablets in front of two police officers who had stopped him for mooning in the city centre.

    Liam James had flashed his bottom at an ex-girlfriend he had seen in Lower Parliament Street.


    The police officers spoke to him and told him to move on - but when he did he dropped a package which he tried to kick under a parked car in George Street.

    When the officers looked inside the package they found the tablets, Nottingham Crown Court heard.

    Gareth Gimson, prosecuting, said that when they arrested James in the early hours of March 11 last year the officers also found 140 in 20 notes on him.

    He said he was carrying the cash because he was due to travel to Majorca the next day.

    James, 27, of Kelvedon Gardens, St Ann's, had pleaded guilty to possession of a class A drug with intent to supply at a previous court hearing.

    But he claimed he had only been dealing the drug among a circle of friends. He also claimed another man was involved.

    The court heard that James had been convicted of previous drugs offences.

    In 2001, he tried to sell Ecstasy to an undercover officer, and on another occasion police found James and some friends with a supply of tablets.

    In mitigation, Jeremy James said: "He is a complete fool. He had possession of a not insignificant amount of tablets.

    "He had enough for a good night out. It turned out to be a very bad night out."

    Mr James added that his client had stopped taking ecstasy and was turning his life around. He had started working as a forklift truck driver

    Judge Michael Stokes, QC, gave James a 12-month sentence suspended for a year. He also ordered him to do 150 hours of unpaid work and to pay 400 costs.

    He said it was James's last chance, adding: "If you are caught in possession of class A drugs in the future with intent to supply you face a minimum sentence of seven years."

    I bet he's bricking it now!

    "You will serve 7 years" probably told him that the last two times he was caught possesssion with intent to supply.

    Still community service will help sort him out with a whole new customer base!
