A MAN has been sentenced to one month in jail for a variety of drug possession and counterfeit money charges.

William Worrell plead guilty to possessing cannabis, possessing methylamphetamine, possessing a controlled weapon, attempting to obtain a prohibited drug, possessing drug paraphernalia and knowingly possessing counterfeit money, at Fremantle Magistrates court today .

On November 1 2017, police discovered 40 pills in his home which were thought to be MDMA or ecstasy.

On the same day police found pepper spray, a total of $300 in counterfeit notes, 28 grams of cannabis, one gram of meth and other drug paraphernalia.

Magistrate Steven Malley said during the hearing that Mr Worrell had a choice.

“You have a choice whether you want to sleep in your own bed, go to the beach or go to the footy,” he said.

Mr Worrell said being in custody gave him time to think about his actions.

“This is not the life I want for me,” he said.

Mr Worrell is currently in prison serving an 18 month sentence.

His most recent sentence will be served concurrently and he will be eligible for parole in nine months.
