A judge has ruled that no action will be taken against a woman who was linked to one of Ipswich’s leading drug dealers.

Lauren Mansukhani, 31, was one of six people arrested in a large-scale police operation August last year.

Dominic Denton, 42, was amongst them.

Earlier this month, Denton was jailed for more than eight years for being concerned in the supply of cocaine and diamorphine, money laundering and fraud.

Mansukhani, formerly of Suffolk, was originally charged with possession of criminal property.

However, at a sentencing hearing held at Ipswich Crown Court on Thursday, Judge David Pugh gave Mansukhani a conditional discharge for 12 months.

This means that no sentence or other action will be imposed against her unless other offences are committed during this period.

However, if she commits other offences she could be sentenced for the original offence.
