A THIRTY-six-year-old Kendal man is facing a likely jail sentence after he admitted intending to supply the class A drug Ecstasy.

Dawid Lisowski, 36, of Aynham Road, Kendal, pleaded guilty to two charges during a brief hearing at Carlisle Crown Court.

The first allegation was that he possessed the class A drug with intent to supply it on March 20.

The second charge he admitted was that he possessed the class B drug cannabis.

Defence lawyer Chris Evans told the court that Lisowski was a man of previous good character who had always worked.

Recorder Mark Rhind said any offence of 'commercial' drug dealing was almost inevitably punished with an immediate jail term.

Adjourning the case until December 18, when the defendant will be sentenced, the judge told Lisowski: "You have entered guilty pleas at the first opportunity, which on the evidence I've seen seems a very sensible decision." The judge added that an immediate jail sentence was almost inevitable.

"But it's right, given that you have been frank with the court, and given you are a man of good character, that you have every opportunity and your defence has every opportunity, to put forward the best mitigation possible."
