A man in the United Kingdom, was given permission to skip his court date because he did not understand the judge’s accent.
The drug dealer of the West Midlands, was arrested in Wales, but he refused to appear before the court because he had a hard time understanding what the judge was saying.
25-year-old Dwaine Campbell was arrested in Aberystwyth, for delivering 50 packets of heroin.
Campbell of Wolverhampton, remained in custody in Wales for 7 days, before being transferred to a prison near his home.
His lawyer, Janet Gedrych, told the court that Campbell complained that he could not understand what anyone in Aberystwyth was saying, due to the accent.
“He is worried that if he is sentenced here, he is going to end up in a prison in Wales, and he will have the same difficulties understanding the prisoners and prison guards,” Gedrych said.
Campbell pleaded guilty to possession of heroin with intent to supply. He will be jailed closer to his home in West Midlands, after he is sentenced by the Swansea Crown Court via video link.
