A TEENAGER has appeared in court for supplying MDMA - a class A drug.

The 17-year-old, from Verwood, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was referred to the Dorset youth offender panel for a 12-month contract when sentenced by the youth court at Poole Magistrates' Court on November 9.

Court documents state that on July 6, 2020 at Wimborne Minster he supplied a quantity of methylenedioxymethylamphetamine, a controlled drug of class A to others.

The court also ordered the teenager to pay a surcharge to fund victim services of £22 and court costs of £85.

The defendant's guilty plea was taken into account when the court imposed the sentence.
