Dinah Walker, 27, Handsworth, Birmingham, has been jailed for 3 years having admitted four charges of possessing class A drugs with intent to supply and two of possessing drugs.
Walker tuned to drugs when her daughter died from meningitis after being wrongly diagnosed. Samantha Forsyth, defending, said that Walker was a teenager when her baby died, and that she had received compensation but no bereavement counselling.
At Birmingham Crown Court, Judge Robert Orme said that he was aware of her tragic background, however previous attempts to change the path she was going down were unsuccessful and that the amount of drugs found on her and at her home were “significant”.
