Panty thief off to Dodds

COURT TODAY BLOCKThe 25-year-old unemployed man who stole several items from his grandmother’s home last December, including panties and boxers, was sentenced to six months in prison yesterday.

As part of his sentence, Nathaniel Jeremiah Jean-Claude Grant will have to undergo drug counselling at HMP Dodds during his incarceration.

Last month when Grant appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court and pleaded guilty, his grandmother Mary Cameron-John told the court that she loved her grandson but he had a serious drug problem and she wanted help for him.

However, Magistrate Douglas Frederick explained to her that Grant first had to be assessed by the Psychiatric Hospital, after which Verdun House would interview him to see if he was a fit candidate for their rehabilitation programme.

That process was followed but unfortunately for Grant, Verdun House officials told the court yesterday that he was not a fit candidate. Based on the interview held with Grant, he seemed reluctant to participate in their rehabilitation programme.

Grant, who has prior convictions, entered his grandmother’s home between December 25 and 28, and made off with $359 in items. Along with the underwear, Grant stole rum, bathroom and toilet cleaner, shampoo and conditioner.

The complainant found the items missing after she returned home from work.

    The judge that sentenced him should be under going drug treatment too. How in the world couldn’t the prison help him if he is stealing his grandmother draws? Yet again you see clearly that the justice system lack basic understanding in passing sensible judgment. All these decisions cost the taxpayers millions of dollars annually.. Yet the government can’t pay their debt..

      My question is if he doesn’t want to undergo rehabilitation what else was to be done with him? Verdun does not forcibly detox anyone.

      Prison isn’t the place for rehab. Studies have shown that rehabilitation centers in prison doesn’t work. In prison they can still get the drugs they want. The fact is you can’t force a person to be drug free. The person themselves have to be ready to work towards being clean.
