Not suitable for community service
A drug accused electrician, who was referred to the Probation Office yesterday to be interviewed for community service, did not get the news today he was probably hoping to hear.
When 36-year-old Gregory Codrington reappeared before District ‘A’ Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant, the magistrate told him that the probation department did not deem him to be a suitable candidate for community service, due to the fact that he was facing other drug charges in another court.
Codrington, of Bannister Land, Martindales Road, St Michael, therefore returns to court on Friday for sentencing on charges of unlawful possession and possession with intent to supplying cannabis.
Yesterday, he pleaded guilty to the offence which occurred on November 27, 2016.
