A LITTLEPORT man who used a crisis loan from the benefit system to set up a drug dealing business had the terms of his suspended jail sentence varied by magistrates this week.

Michael Nunn, 25, of Limes Close, was given a six-month sentence suspended for two years in July, 2006.

He had admitted possessing cannabis with intent to supply, and assaulting a police officer.

As a requirement of the suspended jail sentence last year, Nunn was given a 24-month supervision order, and told to attend a "think first" course.

On Thursday, magistrates were told that Nunn would receive little benefit from the "think first" course. They agreed to remove that element from the order.
