Thief gets another chance
Brian Chucki Marville decided to throw in the towel today, pleading guilty to a December 2014 charge of stealing a bottle of cologne valued at $229.99 from Duty Free Caribbean.
The 21-year-old, who resides at Block 5A Madison Terrace, Deacons Farm, St Michael, threw himself at the mercy of the court.
In the midst of a trial that had already started, Marville changed his plea when he entered the dock this morning.
“I sorry for what I done and I beg the court to be lenient on me today, Sir,” he told Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
“I now come outta prison and I don’t want to go back, Sir. I tired uh dis ting all the time, Sir . . . I ain’t want to waste the court time nor my time. I done wid this. I just come home the 6th uh last month, Sir.
“I don’t want to go back dey, Sir.”
The Magistrate heard his pleas and placed Marville on a bond to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for one year.
“I heard you say you don’t want to go back to prison. If you are not serious, this will come back to haunt you,” Frederick warned.
If the repeat offender breaches the bond, he will spend three months behind bars.
However, Marville returns before the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court on August 12 in relation to another matter. He is accused of unlawfully and maliciously inflicting serious bodily harm on Doneko Martindale on August 3, 2014.
