A SOUTH Cumbria teenager will be sentenced by a judge later this week after he admitted a raft of drugs supply crimes.

Alex Lightley, 18, pleaded guilty to eight offences when he appeared in the dock at Carlisle Crown Court earlier today.

Lightley admitted offering to supply both class A ecstasy and class B cannabis between mid-May and mid-December last year, when he was aged just 17.

He further admitted the supply of four different controlled drugs - ecstasy, cannabis, ketamine and alprazolam - on December 18. And Lightley also pleaded guilty to possessing two of those substances - cannabis and alprazolam - with intent to supply, on the same date.

No specific details about the teen's offending were given during a short hearing in front of Judge James Adkin.

Lightley, whose address was given as c/o Castle Drive, Kendal, was said to have "no fixed address". He had his case adjourned by the judge.

A background report will be prepared by the probation service.
Lightley is due to be sentenced by Judge Adkin on Friday, and in the meantime was granted bail.
