A MAN who admitted having ecstasy with intent to supply at a night club has been sentenced to six months youth detention.
Craig John Williams, 20, of Bridge House, Ber-sham, had been confronted by a doorman in the men's toilets at Liquid Nightclub in the town, Mold Crown Court was told.
The court heard how Williams was found to have 28 ecstasy tablets on him in a bag.
The judge, Miss Recorder Catherine O'Leary, said she took into account his guilty plea, and his basis of plea that he supplied the drug to friends for some financial gain, either directly or indirectly by drinks being bought for him.
It was accepted a custodial sentence would have an impact upon him and that he only had a limited criminal record.
'But I am afraid this court is of the view that this offence is so serious only a custodial sentence can be justified,' she said.
The court heard that a doorman at the nightclub went into the toilets and saw Williams with a bag that contained tablets.
When challenged he dropped them and said they were not his, said prosecutor Nicholas Walker.
Defending barrister John Wyn Williams said his client deserved credit for his early guilty plea and he was full of remorse for what he had done.
But he stressed the supply was only to friends and it was a limited commercial supply, with his return often simply being in the form of drinks.
