Brit mum looking after 15-month-old baby in jail after dealing heroin and crack

A British mum who was jailed for dealing crack cocaine and heroin has been looking after her 15-month-old baby from jail after she returned to prison on remand.

Charlie Murray, 32, teamed up with another mum, Georgina Beaumont, who used her home as the site of a major drug dealing operation.

Appearing in Hull Crown Court via video link, Murray admitted to being concerned in supplying heroin and crack cocaine, as did accomplices Beaumont, 49, and Glen Daley-Cooley, 20, HullLive reported.

Daley-Cooley also admitted to two offences of possessing the drugs with intent to supply.

Judge Sophie McKone said during the trial: "You all must know the damage that the supply of Class A drugs does to a community, not only those who take the drugs themselves but also to the community at large because people have to pay for these drugs and often descend into stealing from that community to pay for those drugs.

"Coming with drug dealing is antisocial behaviour. Your selfish behaviour in dealing drugs has a profound effect on those around you.

"You must have had, all three of you, some awareness of this operation."

Judge McKone said Beaumont was running the drugs operation from her home in Spring Bank, Hull, on May 5, and was seen contacting two drug dealers in the street near the residence. Police followed her back to her house.

Daley-Cooley was preparing drugs in the presence of Murray.

When asked to identify himself by police, Daley-Cooley gave a false name.

A phone, evidently used for drug dealing, was also found at the scene, although it was unclear who was actually using it.

Daley-Cooley had £100 cash, 21 wraps of crack cocaine and 15 wraps of heroin on his person when police arrived.

Mum-of-five Murray had previous convictions and had served a previous prison sentence for conspiracy to supply Class A drugs.

At the time of these offences she was out of prison on licence, but had been in custody on remand since May.

Her 15-month-old baby was taken to New Hall Prison, near Wakefield, with her when she returned to the prison.

Michael Masson, mitigating, said that the involvement of Murray in the offending would weigh heavily on her because of the impact on her children. "Her youngest is in prison with her at the moment," he said.

"She is remorseful as regards her involvement. There is no evidence that she had understanding of the scale of the operation."

Beaumont had previous convictions for possessing drugs and allowing her house to be used for drugs in 2005. "You were for a long time a drug user," said Judge McKone, but added that she was able to stay away from drugs "for a great number of years" while her now-adult children were growing up.

The 49-year-old started up the habit again recently but had "begun the road to recovery" with methadone courses while in custody, also at New Hall.

During the trial the pair appeared on a video link from the prison sitting next to each other.

Amber Hobson, representing Beaumont, said problems in her life caused the defendant to rely in drugs.

"She has recognised that negative pattern of behaviour and has taken steps to end the cycle of offending with substance misuse," said Miss Hobson.

Daley-Cooley had previous convictions as a youth but they were unrelated to drugs.

He was homeless and came to Hull to live with Murray prior to the offences.

Murray was jailed for four years and Beaumont was jailed for two years and eight months.

Daley-Cooley was sent to a young offenders' institution for two years and three months.
