Trespasser admits to drinking problem

COURT TODAY BLOCKDavid Dacosta Miller will spend the next six months behind bars at HMP Dodds for trespassing.

The 35-year-old unemployed man, of no fixed place of abode, was caught in the act of trying to enter the unoccupied house of Denys Wood.

Wood, 94, is currently residing in a nursing home.

The prosecutor in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court revealed that police received a report around 11:15 p.m. on May 31 from Veril Rouse who “keeps the house”, that a man was seen trying to enter one of the windows.

“You were trying to steal from a 94-year-old man? Why?” Magistrate Douglas Frederick asked.

“I have a little drinking and smoking problem,” Miller responded.

“But that’s an old man,” Frederick said.

“I didn’t know, sir,” the accused explained.

The District “A” magistrate went on to advise Miller that it was a serious crime.

After the warning, the accused asked the court “to put him on a programme like alcohol anonymous Sir”.
