UK gangster moll escapes unscathed

A gangster's moll involved in a county lines drugs racket in which three 16-year olds were used has avoided jail. Georgia Burns, 22, regularly taxied her drug-dealing boyfriend Jamie Upton, 25, 100 miles from Manchester to Hull, where one of the boys was forced to live in a squalid flat. When cops raided they found Upton in an upstairs toilet trying to flush drugs down the toilet. The heroin and crack was worth £2,295 plus £3,162 in cash. Burns was sentenced to two years jail suspended for two years and ordered to complete 200 hours unpaid work. Her boyfriend faired less well. It was 9 years in the slammer for him.
