Nine months for breaching bond
Keisha Melissa Clarke will spend the next nine months in prison after breaching a bond imposed on her less than three months ago.
Clarke, 28, of Military Road, Bush Hall, St Michael pleaded guilty to having cocaine in her possession on March 17, 2016, when she appeared in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court yesterday.
When a check was made by Magistrate Douglas Frederick, it was found that Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sergeant had placed Clarke on a one-year bond to keep the peace on January 28.
A breach of that bond meant that she had to pay $1,500 forthwith or spend nine months in prison.
Clarke was unable to pay the fine, and as a result she was hauled off to begin serving her sentence at HMP Dodds.
Frederick also sentenced her to six months for the cocaine charge, but that
will run concurrently.
