A Wanganui district councillor has been offered diversion
after being charged with cannabis possession.
Jack Thomas Bullock, 23, of Durie Hill, briefly appeared
before the court registrar at the Whanganui District Court
this morning represented by Peter Brosnahan. He did not enter
the dock and was silent throughout the appearance.
The registrar remanded Bullock until January 22 to complete
diversion - which means he would escape a criminal
He was arrested as part of Operation Valley on November 22
and appeared at court that afternoon. In a press release this
afternoon Bullock said he would not resign as a councillor
and was not proud of the charge.
