No way out for Grant
Either way, Wayde McLloyd Grant was going to HMP Dodds today.
The 42 year old man, of no fixed place of abode, went before acting Magistrate Elwood Watts in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court charged with having apparatus which was fit for use in connection with cocaine. It was found on him earlier today.
However, there were still two strikes against Grant; not having a fixed place of abode and having an unpaid fine which was imposed on him in April by then acting Magistrate Alliston Seale for another drug-related offence.
Watts explained to Grant that in any event he would have difficulty getting bail once he had no fixed place of abode. Grant, who was dressed in a cut-off khaki shorts with the waist rolled over, a dirty black t-shirt and no shoes, had a solution to that.
“You could give me personal bail,” he proposed. “I could work wid dah.”
He was sentenced to the alternative of two months’ imprisonment for not paying the fine. Today’s matter was adjourned.
