A MAN who is no stranger to the inside of a court room will be sentenced next month for his latest brushes with the law.

David William Mealin, 30, was charged last year with a string of drug, property and driving offences. Mealin was also charged with drug driving and possessing explosives.

He is facing a total of 16 offences.

His barrister told Ipswich Magistrates Court on Monday that Mealin (pictured) would be pleading guilty to the charges.

He asked the matter be listed for a long sentence.

Magistrate Stuart Shearer listed the matter for sentence on February 15 and allowed Mr Mealin to remain on bail until that date.
