Martin Liddiard Defends Drug Boss

Tue, 27 Nov 2012

Brendan Durnin, 49, has been jailed for 11 years for supplying cocaine intended for onward sale on the streets of Wolverhampton.
 
Durnin, 49 of Ashford Park, Wolverhampton, led an extravagant lifestyle funded by his crime but claimed his wealth came from a car valeting business. He flaunted his wealth with holiday homes in Cyprus and Wales, a BMW X5 and by purchasing expensive gifts for partner Nikki Walsh. 
 
He supplied drugs to Walsh's son, Kyle Walsh, and their neighbour Stuart Whyman, who all pleaded guilty to their part.
 
Judge Nicholas Webb said: “It is my view, having heard the evidence, that you played a leading role in this conspiracy and that it was you who supplied the drugs to Kyle Walsh and Stuart Whyman for the onward supply on to the streets."
 
Nikki and Kyle Walsh and Whyman are all due to be sentenced on 18th December.
