Drug addict appeals to court for help

COURT TODAY BLOCKWhen Jason Omar Evelyn returned to court for sentencing yesterday, he reminded the magistrate of his drug addiction and repeated his request for rehabilitation.

Evelyn, 27, of no fixed place of abode, pleaded guilty earlier to stealing $1 580 in items from Fusionz Boutique between September 15 and 16. He later insisted to Magistrate Douglas Frederick that although he had pleaded guilty, all he stole was one t-shirt.

Sergeant Martin Rock told the court last time that Evelyn was walking through Tudor Street, The City, when he noticed a store with a broken show window.

He pushed his arm through the window and removed the property.

“I am asking you if you can help me in any way,” Evelyn beseeched the court.

Magistrate Frederick remanded Evelyn to the Psychiatric Hospital until November 6 for him to be assessed for suitability into a drug rehabilitation programme.
