Crack-cocaine mum is also a 'dedicated voluntary worker' A MUM caught for the second time with crack cocaine avoided jail after a judge heard she was a dedicated voluntary worker.

Kelly Miles, 29, was living at Cardiff's YMCA and seeing her children just three times a year when she was caught buying the class A drug in Llanmaes Street, Grangetown, prosecutors said.

Taken before magistrates, she pleaded guilty to possessing crack and was sent to Cardiff Crown Court having been given a suspended prison sentence for committing the same offence and handling stolen goods in June. The court heard how a report described her as "top of the class for dedication" to the cause. Judge David Wyn Morgan said: "I'm going to treat this as a relapse and give you full credit for your efforts."

She was given a twoyear community order with drug rehabilitation and was reminded the suspended sentence was still in place.
