King’s Lynn man ‘lucky to attend court’ on drugs charges after jumping from second floor window, court told

Have your say

A man has admitted possessing two drugs after police were called to a house where he had jumped from a second floor window.

A court in Lynn heard that Toby Webb was “lucky he didn’t kill himself” during the incident in April.

Webb, 23, of Post Mill, Fairstead, Lynn, pleaded guilty to charges of possessing LSD and amphetamine when he appeared in court in the town yesterday afternoon.

Jane Foster, prosecuting, told the court that police were called to an incident during a party on April 5 this year, in which Webb had jumped out of a window.

While there, the officers searched the property and found the drugs, which Webb later admitted were his and were for his own, recreational use.

During an interview, he said he used the substances “two or three times a month” and had acquired them at a rave.

And Ian Graham, mitigaging, said that his client appreciated how lucky he was to appear before the court at all.

He said he had asked Webb whether he intended to harm himself during the incident, but said that his level of intoxication had led him to do something “rather foolish.”

He said: “He was very lucky he didn’t kill himself.

“He jumped out of a second floor window and, amazingly, didn’t suffer any life-threatening injuries.”

Mr Graham said Webb realised that using the drugs could lead him to “do something dangerous.”

And he hoped the incident would bring some “clarity of thinking” to his client in the future.

Webb was fined £220 for possession of LSD, a class A drug. No separate penalty was imposed on the amphetamine count.

He was also ordered to pay a £180 criminal courts charge, £85 in prosecution costs, plus a £22 victim surcharge.
