Griffith was sentenced to six months in February when he pleaded guilty to possessing 50 pounds of cannabis with intent to supply. He appealed that sentence and was granted bail.

While on bail, police executed a search warrant at Griffith’s home and found the stash of marijuana.

Griffith also pleaded guilty to possessing 5 rounds of .38 ammunition.
