( 4UMF NEWS ) Mom Bought Daughter Cocaine For 18th Birthday:
A British mom caught with almost $1,000 worth of cocaine said she had bought it to celebrate her daughter’s 18th birthday.
Nicola Austen, 37, was arrested at home with nearly six grams of the drug, and told a court it was a gift for her teenage daughter’s birthday.
Austen told cops she planned to snort the drug with her daughter to “have a good time” on a night out in London.
Maidstone Crown Court in England heard how Austen had booked a limousine and planned to take the stash with her to “surprise” her daughter on her 18th birthday.
“They were going to London in a limousine and she wanted to make sure they had a good time,” prosecutor Craig Evans told the court.
The drugs were found by a police dog on Jan. 31 in 12 wraps hidden in Austen’s bedroom, reported the Daily Mirror.
Defense attorney Danny Moore said Austen — who has six previous convictions, one for possessing amphetamines in 2010 — is ashsamed to be in court again.
He said: “It is to her great shame she finds herself in court — she appeared to have left this sort of thing behind.”
But Austen, who admitted cocaine possession with intent to supply, avoided jail as she was handed nine months in jail, suspended for a year, and ordered to complete 250 hours of community service.
