Text messages into the activities of a Nottinghamshire drug dealer showed he owed a substantial amount of money. Cameron Gillies pleaded guilty to drugs allegations on the basis he described a degree of coercion and pressure but it fell short of of duress, Nottingham Crown Court heard on Thursday, June 16.

The 32-year-old, whose date of birth is 19/04/1990 and who is previously from an address in Nottinghamshire, admitted supplying cannabis to another between September 16, 2020, and February 25, 2021.

He further admitted possessing cannabis with intent to supply on September 27, 2020, possessing cocaine with intent to supply to another on February 24, 2021, and possessing amphetamine with intent to supply also on February 24.

The court also heard he has significant mental health problems which ultimately led to him behaving in this way. Judge Stuart Rafferty QC adjourned until July 29 when full details of the charges will be heard in court, as well as more on Gillies’ mitigation, and his sentence.

The judge ordered a full pre-sentence report but said: “I can’t say at the moment he is going to escape custody. It is all to play for. At least he had pleaded guilty now and that is a step in the right direction”. Gillies was bailed on the same terms with a condition to cooperate with the preparation of a probation report.
