Poppy Murray, 22, privately-educated drug dealer, spared jail as lawyer claims stress of case has damaged her skin

Our thanks to John for this. Extracts:

An undergraduate who helped her younger brother run a student drug smuggling ring has been spared jail after pleading a prison term would ‘blight’ her future career.

Privately-educated Poppy Murray, 22, acted as a go-between for teenage sibling Joel, 19, who dealt ‘recreational’ narcotics to Manchester’s party set…

At Minshull Street Crown Court, Joel and Poppy pleased guilty to supplying cocaine. But although he was locked away for seven years, his older sister, who initially said she did not see ‘anything morally wrong’ with supplying ‘recreational’ drugs to friends, got 12 months’ jail, suspended for 18 months.

If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.

  • The reluctance by the authorities to treat female criminals more firmly, on par with their male counterparts, has its roots in the gentleman culture from the Victorian times. Clearly, this is not fair, not right and out of place with today’s society. What does need to happen is for men to acknowledge the rules of the game have changed 180 degrees and so must men’s treatment of women. We must come to accept that privileging women in a society where women live exactly the same lifestyle as men, compete with men for position and power, is no longer justifiable.

    I wonder if drug addiction will “blight the future careers” of anyone she helped supply drugs to.
