Bicyclist sent shopping
A 36-year-old electrician, who pleaded guilty to a series of traffic offences involving a bicycle, was ordered Monday by a District ‘A’ Magistrate to go shopping for all the things the bicycle was required to have. When Gregory Decourcey Codrington of Bannister Land, Martindales Road, St Michael appeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, he pleaded guilty to riding on November 27, 2016, a bicycle without a lamp, a bell, brakes, or a number plate, and neither was it registered.
The magistrate sent him shopping for all those things and ordered him to take them back to the court Tuesday, along with the receipts. Codrington, who also admitted to drug possession and possession with intent to supply, was referred to the probation office to be interviewed in order to assess his eligibility for community service. He is to return to court on December 28, 2016 for the outcome when the probation report will be presented.
