Unemployed man fined for cannabis cultivation

COURT TODAY BLOCKA mother was told today to “be more vigilant” and “watch what people growing in your backyard.”

That was after her son Tero Diego Archer pleaded guilty to possession of marijuana and cultivating one cannabis plant on March 31.

The Belle Land, My Lord’s Hill, St Michael resident appeared before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court earlier today.

A search warrant was executed at Archer’s home on Tuesday and the plant was found in the backyard. He told police he brought home the plant “and forget it out there”.

The unemployed man was fined $550 forthwith with an alternative of three months in prison for the possession offence. That fine was paid.

Archer was further fined $500 payable in six weeks, for cultivating the plant. If he does not pay the fine, he will spend three months behind bars.

    He is unemployed , so the land with all the bush down by the UWI need cleaning . Make him clean it off and get the monies from the owner to pay him . Give him something “useful” to do so that he can earn an honest dollar .
