Unemployed man owns up to stealing

COURT TODAY BLOCKAn unemployed man who spent the past few weeks under observation at the Psychiatric hospital, returned to court today with a changed plea.

On his previous appearance in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court No. 2, Julian Ricardo Haynes, 35, had pleaded not guilty to stealing a $20 hat belonging to Roger Small and a pack of ice-cream cones belonging to Rechardo Thomas.

On that occasion, police prosecutor Sergeant Neville Reid had objected to bail for the accused, stating he had no fixed place of abode, was likely to reoffend and was well known to the law courts.

Responding, Haynes said he had been released from the Psychiatric Hospital only days before and that he had an addiction.

After considering the hospital’s report and the guilty plea, Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant sentenced Haynes to one month in jail on each count but suspended the sentences for two months.

She also advised Haynes to get something to eat after leaving the court and to take his medication.
