Jody Latham on his way to court

Jody Latham on his way to court

Actor Jody Latham, 30, from Burnley cried at Burnley Court earlier today when Judge Judy Beverly Lunt only gave him a 12 month prison sentence, suspended for 2 years, after being caught growing cannabis last year.

The Shameless star was told he had a ‘sophisticated’ drug operation when police found 24 plants growing behind a partitioned wall of his former girlfriend’s garage (not Tulisa by the way).

16 of the plants are said to be worth up to £9,000.


After pleading guilty in an earlier hearing between March and May last year, Jody told the court today that he grew the plant because he was worried about buying from dealers due to his celebrity status.

The Judge then gave him a simple solution of not buying cannabis in the first place. Duh.

Jody was warned by the Judge that if he was caught again then she would not be so understanding.
