Don’t send me to jail, begs Yarde

COURT TODAY BLOCKZebian Izachar Yarde could consider himself lucky to still have his freedom despite pleading guilty to four charges in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court this afternoon.

In what turned out to be Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant’s final case of the day, she showed leniency to the 27-year-old resident of Inch Marlow, Christ Church, after he begged not to be sent to prison.

Yarde pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis, driving a motorcycle without insurance and road tax, and driving without a valid drivers license earlier today.

And while he managed to escape imprisonment, he will have to fork out $2,050 in fines in the next six months, or he will spend six months in prison.

In giving the facts, prosecutor Neville Reid had earlier told the court that Yarde was seen driving a motorcycle along Wildey, St Michael around 9:30 a.m. when he was stopped by police who were conducting traffic checks in the area.

He aroused the suspicion of lawmen after he began to fidget with his front pants pocket and after consenting to a search, they found a partially burnt cigarette in his pocket.

When questioned he admitted it was cannabis telling the officers, “I just buy that five-bag to smoke”.

He was arrested for the offence and when checks were made with respect to the motorcycle, it was found the insurance and road tax had expired and that Yarde had never held a valid drivers’ license.

But a remorseful Yarde quickly apologized to the court for his actions.

“I am very sorry for driving the bike without road tax and insurance. Please, I would not like to go to jail because I only just got a job,” he pleaded.

Cuffy-Sargeant fined him $750 to be paid in two weeks, with an alternative of two months in prison on the charge of possession of cannabis.

She also fined him $800 to be paid in two months or six months in prison for driving without insurance and $500 to be paid in two months or six months in prison for driving without road tax.

The sentences will run concurrently.

The magistrate also barred him from applying for, or obtaining a drivers licence for one year.

    Where was the victims in this case what were affected? None, because the state isn’t a victim or person but instead a fictional entity. People still doesn’t understand that that are the government and gives it its power by consenting. You can’t be going to prison or punished for a rule violation that does NO harm to others. But in saying so look carefully how democracy works. Are you free with liberty so the government claims? No, you aren’t cause they won’t be able to collect revenue from the people. It’s all an illusion of make believe and control. If he didn’t had any money to pay for licensing and insurance, then the poor are limited to have a decent life.
    Anyone that has a moral judgment understand that you have privileges not democracy and liberty. Anytime you challenge your politicians, prosecutors and judges with this fact. They never will answer your question honestly or ever at all. I won’t be surprised if many doesn’t understand what I am talking about. That’s because you were brainwashed into believing that the government laws are right and you are wrong. Its ALL done to control you and take your money, Nothing more than deception..Think about it.

    Just got a job and doing bare foolishness. Lucky Zebian is lucky that he did not have an accident or injured someone. The Magistrate should of impounded the motorcycle or have it destroyed.
