Labourer caught growing cannabis in backyard

COURT TODAY BLOCKEven though John Alston Brathwaite denied four drug charges a year ago, today he changed his plea and admitted committing the February 2014 offences.

When Brathwaite, 52, of McClean Gap, Brittons Hill, St Michael, went before acting Magistrate Alliston Seale in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, he pleaded guilty to possession, trafficking, intent to supply and cultivation of one pound of marijuana.

Sergeant Janice Ifill told the court that when police executed a search warrant at Brathwaite’s home, they found a six-foot tall cannabis plant growing in the yard.

The labourer was fined $1 500 in four months for trafficking with an alternative of one year
behind bars.

He must pay a further $500 in one month’s time for cultivating the cannabis plant or spend six months in jail.

Brathwaite was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on possession and intent to supply.
