Woman is facing jail for dealing

A WOMAN was warned she could go to prison after admitting drug dealing charges.

Tracey Beevers, 40, from Hartlepool, pleaded guilty to two charges at Teesside Crown Court yesterday.

She admitted possessing the Class B drugs cannabis and amphetamine with intent to supply on May 1 last year.

Despite having no previous convictions Judge John Walford said a prison sentence was likely.

He said: "I want you to know that any offence involving the distribution of drugs is likely to involve a custodial sentence and that's regardless of the age, gender or antecedents of the person involved."

The case was adjourned so background reports could be prepared.

Beevers, of Marmion Close, Hartlepool, was released on bail.

She will be sentenced on Friday, February 11.
