Jail for Sydney man on drug charges

A Sydney man will be doing federal prison time on drug charges.

31 year old Justin Andrew MacKinnon of Cross Street pleaded guilty to two drug counts, assault, theft and breaching a court order. Other charges were dismissed. The judge gave him three years in prison.

His co-accused 31 year old Stacey Marie Parsons saw five drug charges against her dismissed. She and MacKinnon were arrested last December in a Cross Street residence.
