Wilson pleaded guilty for having in his possession two rocks of cocaine, which he said he bought from Vanessa John of the same address.

According to reports, officers were on duty in the Vermont area when they met the defendant and conducted a search on him. The defendant was found with the two rocks of cocaine in his pants pocket, which he admitted belong to him.

When he appeared before the Kingstown Magistrates’ Court on Monday, Wilson, who has previous convictions for stealing, told the court that he usually tries to keep away from the drug but sometimes it’s futile.(SB)
