Six months for Marville

COURT TODAY BLOCKA man who not only resisted, but also assaulted two police officers as they tried to arrest him, will spend the next four months behind bars as punishment.

Magistrate Douglas Frederick handed down a six-month sentence to 22-year-old Brian Chuckie Marville of Block 5A, Madison Terrace, Deacons Farm, St Michael when he appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court this morning.

Having spent the past two months on remand after pleading not guilty to the charges of assaulting and resisting police constables Veronica Carrington and Justin Henry in the execution of their duties, as well as having cannabis in his possession on February 9, 2016, Marville changed his plea when he reappeared in court today.

On imposing the sentence, Frederick told him he took the two months he had served on remand into account, which meant he would only have to serve a further four months in HMP Dodds.

Police prosecutor Sergeant Martin Rock told the court that Carrington and Henry saw Marville, who was wanted by the police at the time, walking along Madison Terrace.

As they approached him and tried to arrest him, he resisted and fought the two officers, kicking them in the groin and face, which resulted in them sustaining soft tissue damage.

After he was eventually arrested and taken to Central Police Station, a search was conducted and $5 worth of cannabis was found on his person.
