Colombian duo to wait until March
There will be an even longer wait for sentencing for two Colombians who were expecting to be punished today for going into a woman’s house with the intention of committing theft.
When David Mauricio Botero-Montes and Santiago Prad Vieda appeared in the District “D” Magistrate Court this morning, Magistrate Ian Weekes delayed deciding their punishment until a pre-sentencing report is done.
They will reappear before him next month.
The two are jointly charged with entering the dwelling house of Dora Parris as a trespasser, with intent to commit theft, between January 22 and 25 this year.
Botero-Montes also faces other similar charges, as well as two other Colombians, Hames Asdrubal Mendoza Arevalo and Bairon Valencia Lopez. They are yet to be sentenced after pleading guilty.
The four came into the island on different days in January.
