$500 for using indecent language to police officer
Paul Nadjee Akeem Taylor has one month to pay the District “A” Magistrates Court a $500 fine.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant imposed the sentence on the 25-year-old conductor after he admitted to using abusive language towards Station Sergeant Lemuel Hackett in the execution of his duties.
The incident occurred on August 10.
According to the facts read by Prosecutor Sergeant Neville Reid, Taylor, who is listed on the charge sheet as having no fixed place of abode, said: “The police is bare s**t,” while the officer was conducting investigations.
He was warned that the words were deemed an offense to which he responded, “wanna petty”.
Failure to pay the fine could land Taylor behind bars for two months.
He was also placed on a bond for six months. If he breaches the bond he will have to pay $750 forthwith or spend two months in prison.
Taylor returns to court on September 16, when he is expected to present his receipt.
