Dad Banned From His Own GARDEN SHED After Admitting to Growing Cannabis

Simon-Redclift-banned

A man has been banned from going into his own garden shed in what may be the first court order of its kind.

Simon Redclift was warned he would be in breach of bail conditions if he enters the custom-built shed at the bottom of his garden.

Mr Redclift said he was now preparing to say goodbye to the shed, which had been “a room for all the family” for 14 years.

The married father had repeatedly used the shed to grow cannabis and has five convictions for cultivating the drug.

He pleaded guilty to producing cannabis and possessing it with intent to supply following the latest police raid on his home and garden on August.

Judge David Wynn Morgan told Mr Redclift he was considering whether he could order the shed to be removed from his garden.

He told Mr Redclift he was giving his lawyers seven days “to consider reasons why it should not be dismantled and taken away”.

He also said that if he did decide against a confiscation order he would consider placing a restraining order on Mr Redclift, preventing him from ever going inside it again.

He cannot go inside it while he is on bail.

Speaking after his latest appearance at Cardiff Crown Court, Mr Redclift, 53, of Sir Ivor Place, Dinas Powys, said it would be difficult to say goodbye to the timber-crafted shed.

“It’s been a room for all the family over the years. It was not just a shed that I put up and adapted to put cannabis in,” he said.

He said he enjoyed nothing more than relaxing in the shed and working on decorative wood or watching David Attenborough’s The Blue Planet on DVD – while smoking cannabis.

On the potential forfeiture of the shed, he said: “I don’t really see what it proves. If I wanted to continue growing I could do it in my attic, I could do it in the back garden, I could do it in a cupboard – it’s just a waste of my shed.”

Mr Redclift and friends have now started dismantling the £800 shed, which was originally built by a carpenter friend as extra space at the rear of his family’s three-bedroom home.

Teetotal Mr Redclift said it became his “second living room” when his wife gave up smoking, meaning he could no longer do so indoors. He also had a log-burner and television set in there.

“If I can’t find a taker it’s going to be burnt – it’s a shame,” he said.

Mr Redclift, who is unemployed, said he smoked cannabis to deal with acute panic attacks, which developed after he spent three months in prison in Cardiff in 1990 for stealing from his employer.

“I suffer from anxiety and it keeps me at a level of calm through most of the day,” he said.

“If not, I have to take a lot more of the Valium the doctor otherwise prescribes me.”

He has previously been convicted of growing cannabis at his home in 2004, 2008, 2010 and 2011.

When he was arrested last year, the court heard he told police he used it medicinally because he “wasn’t a well man”.

Police said the yield from the plants found could have been worth up to £20,000, but Mr Redclift’s defence barrister, Hywel Hughes, told the court he was not motivated by money.

The antique-marble collector, described in court as a “model father”, said of his ban: “If it satisfies the judge, it’s something that I’m prepared to do. I’m not going to cultivate again.”

Crown prosecutor Tony Trigg said five mature and 32 immature plants were growing in the shed, with the smell getting stronger and stronger as police approached and opened the door.

But Mr Hughes told the court the shed, which had been adapted for cannabis cultivation, had recently been turned back into a simple garden shed.

He handed the judge pictures showing how it was put to use by other members of Mr Redclift’s family.

He said Mr Redclift had rid himself of his long-term cannabis habit, which was confirmed in a letter by his “long-suffering” wife.

Adjourning proceedings for seven days, Judge Wynn Morgan told Redclift: “I’m not impressed with the attitude you adopt towards the courts, the probation service and offending.

“It’s one thing to say you enjoy smoking cannabis but another to say I’m going to go on doing it because I do not agree with the law.”

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

on

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
