Tennant Creek man pleads guilty to cannabis possession after calling police on himself.


William Pointon called police to a Tennant Creek property to report that a young person had broken into his residence and stolen some of his cannabis plants.

Now, the 60-year-old has paid the price for dobbing himself in.

Key points:
William Pointon called police to report the theft of his cannabis plants
He says while the plants should not be illegal, young people should not have them
The 60-year-old will be sentenced later this week
Pointon pleaded guilty in the Alice Springs Supreme Court yesterday to cultivating a commercial quantity of cannabis.

The court heard that after police arrived, Pointon invited them inside to inspect the property.

Officers found and confiscated 69 cannabis plants, some up to 1.5 metres tall.

Full admissions
Defence lawyer Noah Redmond told the court that while Pointon felt cannabis should not be illegal, he believed children should not have access to it.

"The fact that he did call police on himself for cultivating cannabis is a very significant factor," Mr Redmond said.

"Youths were attempting to steal his cannabis, and he had a view ... that children are not capable of making decisions whether or not to smoke cannabis ... so he called police to prevent them having access."

The court heard Pointon had been growing cannabis for decades and did not sell the plants for money, rather he would trade them cannabis for food, goods and labour among his friends.

Nevertheless, Mr Redmond reinforced that his client recognised cultivating cannabis was illegal and therefore wrong.

"Pointon participated in a voluntary record of interview in which he made full admissions to cultivating the plants and he had been growing cannabis plants for about 40 years," prosecutor Glen Dooley said.

Pointon will be sentenced later this week.

"He must be given some credit for dobbing himself into police and for his motivation in doing so," Judge Peter Barr said.
