Rachel Allen - God Help Her...

Ah young fella ……


Joshua Allen, the son of celebrity chef Rachel Allen, has been remanded in custody until Friday while the presiding judge reads probation reports compiled in relation to him.

Mr Allen (22) of Ballinamona, Shanagarry, Co Cork appeared before Cork Circuit Criminal Court on Monday where he was appealing a two-month sentence he previously received after he was convicted of being in possession of €280 worth of cocaine in July 2020.

The offence occurred just weeks after Mr Allen was released from custody having served a 15-month sentence after he was found to be in possession of €22,000 worth of cannabis for sale and supply in August 2018.

Allen had received a 30-month sentence, with half of it suspended by a judge in March 2020. However, his re offending was a triggering offence and Mr Allen was before the court today so Judge Sarah Berkeley could make a determination on whether he should go back to prison.

Judge Berkeley told Cork Circuit Criminal Court that she was particularly concerned about two suspected drug driving cases facing Mr Allen including one alleged incident which occurred in Dungarvan, Co Waterford a month ago. The second alleged incident was in April of last year.

Defence barrister Donal O'Sullivan said that his client vehemently denied both drug driving allegations. He stated that Mr Allen had turned his life around via work and was training in MMA five to six times a week

Not sure shouting about MMA being the key to his recovery and being clean as a result is the best thing
