A Ramelton will go on trial charged with allegedly growing cannabis at his home.
A book of evidence was served on Nicholas Hanlon (52) of Wheelie Lea, Pound Street, at Monday’s sitting of Letterkenny District Court.
It is alleged that he, without licence, cultivates plants of the genus cannabis at his home address.
Hanlon also faces a charge of being in the unlawful possession of a controlled drug, namely cannabis herb.
The charges are dated July 28, 2021 and are contrary to the Misuse of Drugs Act, 1977.
Garda Adam Daly told the court he served a book of evidence on Hanlon, who is represented by solicitor Mr Frank Dorrian.
Judge Éiteáin Cunningham administered the alibi warning to Hanlon, who was present in court, but did not speak during the brief hearing.
A section 56 order in relation to provision of videotapes of interviews to the defence was made by Judge Cunningham.
Sergeant Gerard Dalton informed the court the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) has consented for the accused to be forward for trial to the next sitting of Letterkenny Circuit Court in October.
