Man apologizes for sending obscene messages to Digicel

COURT TODAY BLOCKAfter admitting today that he sent obscene messages via a telecommunications network to three female Digicel employees in July 2014 and caused them alarm, Randolph Adolphus Brewster was convicted, reprimanded and discharged.

It was not that Magistrate Douglas Frederick did not deem the offences serious, but he took Brewster’s mental health status into consideration before sentencing.

Brewster, who lives at Warner Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael, had called the customer care representatives randomly between July 29 and 31, 2014. When they answered the phone, he told each of them in very colourful language what he wanted to do to them.

According to Station Sergeant Neville Watson, Brewster called the PBX several times that day and stated his desires. Since he had used a Digicel cellular phone, the company ascertained the number and cancelled it after the calls became excessive.

Subsequently, Brewster went to a Digicel outlet and reported that his first sim card was no longer working and he wanted another. It was the information which he gave there that led police to him.

He apologized in court today and promised to check himself into the Psychiatric Hospital so that he could get some help. His attorney Dr Waldo Waldron-Ramsay, QC, also confirmed that Brewster had psychiatric issues.

Presiding in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court No. 1, Magistrate Frederick told Brewster that he seemed to have a fixation with this type of behaviour and encouraged him to get help as soon as possible.    

When Brewster first appeared in court, he was sent for a psychiatric assessment after he stood unresponsive in the dock for quite some time, after being asked to plead. He later returned to court, was deemed fit to plead and pleaded not guilty.

Evidence was already taken in the matter but Brewster changed his plea today.

    At least he was sane enough to apologize.
