Expensive bike ride for St Michael teen

courtAn 18-year-old St Michael man was Friday slapped with a $1 250 fine after pleading guilty to committing a number of traffic violations in the City.

Tio Romario Renaldo Peters of #311 Field Place, Bayville, admitted to riding a motorcycle without a helmet, driver’s licence, insurance, or road tax, and failing to register the vehicle.

According to the facts read in the District ‘A’ Traffic Court, lawmen were on mobile patrol along Martindales Road yesterday when they saw the accused on the bike.

Peters looked in the direction of the police and sped off into Taylor’s Gap in an attempt to evade the lawmen. They gave chase and the accused was apprehended after falling off the motorcycle twice.

    Here is another case where one of our youngsters can be easily ‘Black- listed’. I do not think that at 18 years old and just out of school that this youngster should have a prison term as a penalty for such simple crimes.
    This child needs to be put in an institution other than prison where he can be taught to be a ‘ smart individual ‘. Remember ‘Boys would be Boys’ ! This child needs guidance.

    So why should the kid go to jail? To come out worse that he went in SMH, have some heart guy, I do agree with you Elmina. Who knows if this kid has ADHD or some other mental problem. Kids can be defiant but prison is not the cure for someone with probably a first offence.

      Why not send him to prison?

      Suppose when he was trying to escape he had killed a child playing in the street, or knocked over an old lady.

      He needed the book thrown at him.
      Same should go for all that drive around with out license
      and being insurance.

    THESE BLEEDING HEARTS THAT KEEP PLEADING FOR THESE CRIMINAL MINDED YOUNG MEN AND WOMEN THAT ARE MAKING A MOCKERY OF THE LAWS OF THE LAND.
    WONDER IF THESE VAGRANTS WERE TO COMMIT A CRIME AGAINST THE SAME FOLK THAT THINK THEY DON’T DESERVE A CRIMINAL RECORD WOULD BE SAYING AND THINKING THE SAME IF HE HAD KILLED HIS DAUGHTER,SON OR A PARENT.
    THE LAW SHOULD BE OBEYED BY EACH AND EVERYONE THAT IS ABLE TO READ,WRITE,AND COMMUNICATE IN A SENSIBLE MANNER. I AM SURE HE WAS NOT TAUGHT TO BE A CRIMINAL. THAT HIS CHOICE.
