A PILL pedlar who was jailed for supplying drugs to a dad-of-three on the day he died of heart failure has had her sentence reduced.

Hartlepool woman Leeann Douglass was sentenced to 22 months in jail at Teesside Crown Court after admitting several drugs charges and assaulting a police officer.

But after an unusual move by Judge Peter Armstrong, the 25-year-old’s sentence has been axed by four months. She will now serve 18 months imprisonment for the crimes.
