Snaggs blames mother for his troubles

Jason Anthony Snaggs, who was accused of damaging someone’s property just hours after being released from prison last year, was granted his freedom today.

When Snaggs, 31, of Villa Road, Brittons Hill, St Michael made his first appearance in the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court, he denied damaging a mirror belonging to Everton Cumberbatch on August 23, 2016.

However, after several months on remand, he had a change of heart today.

“Sir, I would like to plead guilty on this matter. I in jail since August and nothing ain’t going on with this case,” he told the magistrate, who told him that he had been given that chance seven months ago but he chose to engage in criminal behaviour that landed him right back in police custody.

“Your Honour, when you released me I went to the bank . . . because my mother when she see money her hands does get light and she just spends. My mother is why I get the first charge in the first place. You can’t please women. We get put here first and them here to please we,” he said.

Snaggs informed the magistrate that the offence he was pleading guilty to had occurred on his way to the bank, when he went to the defence of a young lady who was the target of derogatory comments as she walked the road.

“And I think to myself, ‘if that was my sister?’ So I turn back to try to hit de man,” Snaggs said, even as he asked Magistrate Frederick for help with his anger issues.

“I would like you to put me on anger management because I does lose my patience fast. I would like to compensate the complainant because I does do landscaping,” he added, in trying to gain his freedom.

The magistrate informed Snaggs that he needed to work on his behaviour and then placed him on a bond to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for the next six months. If he breaches the bond, he will spend three months at HMP Dodds.

    This man is not mentally stable. So why put this up to cause undue stress on his mother?? Anyone that knows this man knows that he is a full psycho.

    Sebastian Da Costa why you say that. Every one deserve a chance. He told the majestrate that he has anger management problems. and that he would like help. A person can change their live around. With the almighty nothing is in possible. Do you have any family who been to jail. If he was your family would you say the same thing.

    He needs to be around positive influences. Make him do community work at a church. Hopefully he will surround himself with people who will guide him down the right path in life instead of violent tendencies.

    I just can’t. Seriously. Women are here to please men so you were defending a woman’s honour by hitting a man, still in the same breath you blaming your mother. Devonte you are correct he is mental and I believe that they should send him to Black Rock.
