Woman who gave drugs to addict who died may be given rehabilitation
A woman who supplied drugs to an addict who died of an overdose is to be assessed for a rehabilitation course.
A judge has delayed the sentence of Gemma Gurr to allow drugs workers to interview her and decide if she may be eligible for a rehabilitation requirement.
Gurr Gurr, 37, admitted supplying methadone to Clare Bain on December 4 last year at an earlier hearing and her case was initially adjourned for a pre sentence report.
It was adjourned again after the probation service recommended the assessment, which could lead to a drug rehabilitation requirement being attached to a suspended or community sentence.
