Student had drug at school, court told

A FORMER student of The Scots PGC College found with marijuana in her bag while at school has appeared in the Warwick Magistrates Court.

Lucille Margaret Shakspeare this week pleaded guilty to having a small amount of the drug and a pipe in February 15.

When interviewed by police the following week, the 17-year-old admitted to owning the drugs.

When discussing appropriate sentencing options, Police Prosecutor Sergeant Ken Wiggan told the court the teenager had already undertaken a drug diversion course.

He said the Inglewood teenager, who no longer attends the Warwick school, was placed in the program when she was found to have marijuana in her bag at last year's rodeo. The matter did not go before the court and was handled by the police.

Shakspeare's lawyer told the court his client was not the owner of that marijuana and it was placed in her bag by someone else.

She was given another chance at drug diversion this week and placed on a $150 good behaviour bond for four months.
