From prison to psychiatric hospital

A 27-year-old man was today transferred from HMP Dodds to the Psychiatric Hospital for an assessment.

Michael Omar Kirton of Breedy’s Land, Silver Sands, Christ Church recently admitted to 17 counts of burglary.

Among his guilty pleas before Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale were to charges of entering several houses as a trespasser, including: the home of Marielle Ishmael on September 19, and stealing $120 in cash and a speaker worth $100; Abdul Sharif’s home on September 18, and stealing $25 in cash belonging to Melissa Sharif; the home of Marcia Ashby, and stealing $250 in cash, a visa card, a debit card, and a Barbados identification card, sometime between September 5 and 6; Donnie Prescott’s home, and stealing $652 in cash; Trudy Wood’s house between September 24 and 25 with intent to commit theft; as well as the homes of Shanice Bridgeman and Carland Connel.

He also admitted to a loitering on Chancery Lane with intent to commit theft.

The magistrate ordered a three-week remand period at the Black Rock, St Michael institution, where Kirton will undergo assessment following a recommendation by the probation department, for treatment for his drug problems.

He returns to court on January 5, 2017.

    {I’m just looking for a home}

    I been down once, I been down twice
    I been down so many times in my life
    Mister justice of the peace
    Won’t you leave me alone
    I never hurt nobody
    I’m just looking for a home

    Spent the last few weeks in a small town jail “HMP DODDS”
    On account of nobody that could post my bail
    I asked the sheriff man, “Say, tell me what I done?”
    He just turned away and said with a smile
    “I’ll think of something, son.”
