first_imgA man caught providing drugs to Bristol Prison has had his sentence increased after the Solicitor General, Robert Buckland QC MP, referred it to the Court of Appeal for being too low.Jason Weeks, 26, was stopped by police after CCTV caught him throwing drugs over the prison wall into the exercise yard from a vehicle. When searched, more drugs were found in the vehicle, as well as at Weeks’ home, where he was also growing cannabis.Between those drugs thrown into the prison, in the vehicle, and those found at his home, Weeks was responsible for over 1.5kg of cannabis and synthetic cannabinoids.Weeks was originally sentenced at Bristol Crown Court in May, where he was sentenced to 16 months’ imprisonment suspended for 24 months. Today, after the Solicitor General’s referral, the Court of Appeal increased his sentence to 15 months immediate custody, with the one month reduction due to recent progress he has made.Commenting on the imprisonment, the Solicitor General said:“Weeks risked seriously undermining the important role Bristol Prison plays in many of its inmates’ rehabilitation, in particular the work they do to address substance misuse. I am pleased that the Court of Appeal has today agreed to increase his sentence to show that crimes of this nature will not be tolerated.”last_img read more

first_imgGreat Scott! “Creative differences” have delayed the long-awaited stage adaptation of Robert Zemeckis’ hit 1985 movie Back to the Future, which had been aiming to time travel its way into the West End in 2015. According to the Daily Mail, U.K. director Jamie Lloyd (who’s helming the upcoming Urinetown and Assassins in London) has withdrawn from the production. Seems he and Bob Gale, who wrote the film, disagreed about the tuner’s direction. Back to the Future follows Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) as he is accidentally sent back in time from 1985 to 1955, where he helps his teenaged parents fall in love. After becoming intertwined in his parents’ high school romance, McFly nearly causes a massive rift in the space-time continuum that threatens his existence. He then enlists the help of Dr. Emmett “Doc” Brown (Christopher Lloyd) to return to 1985. This is even more upsetting as apparently after an abrupt departure from the Broadway-bound Finding Neverland, Roger Bart had been in negotiations to star in a workshop of the show as “Doc” Brown. Composer Alan Silvestri, who scored many of Zemeckis’s films, including Forrest Gump and Cast Away, is to co-author the score for the show with Grammy winner Glen Ballard (Ghost the Musical). The musical will also feature familiar songs, including “The Power of Love,” “Johnny B. Goode,” “Earth Angel” and “Mr. Sandman,” all of which are part of the original movie.center_img View Commentslast_img read more
