Drug offender gets more than slap on the wrist

COURT TODAY BLOCKA first-time offender has been warned by the Acting Chief Magistrate Christopher Birch not to “make the same mistake twice”.

Birch was speaking to Adam Demitre Graham in the District ‘C’ Magistrate Court earlier today, after Graham admitted to the possession, trafficking and intent to supply 17 grammes of marijuana on March 29.

Sergeant Azel Skeete said that police found the drugs at the Lemon Arbor, St John home of the 22-year-old when they executed a search warrant there.

Graham pleaded guilty to all three charges and after speaking with a probation officer, the recommendation was that he be made to perform 240 hours of community service, which has to be completed by June 10 when he returns to court.

Birch warned the young man to complete the assignment because failure to do so will mean “a day [in jail] for every hour that is not performed”.
