Cannabis grower in court.

A MAN caught growing 10 cannabis plants for his own use has been given a community sentence, which includes 160 hours' unpaid work.

Kris Woods, 23, who has previous convictions, was charged with production of cannabis after the plants were found growing at a property in Woodhead Road, Huddersfield, in November.

Woods, of Botham Fields, Golcar, will be supervised by the probation service for nine months as part of the one-year community sentence.

Judge Colin Burn, sitting at Bradford Crown Court, told Woods yesterday that the offence, which he admitted, was another example of his disregard for the law.

Barrister Adam Birkby, for Woods, said it was his first conviction for growing drugs and he had now taken steps to change his life.

Mr Birkby said Woods had now stopped using cannabis.
