Drug accused goes by more than one name

A Bridgetown magistrate today imposed an eight-month suspended sentence on a 31-year-old man who confessed to having cocaine.

Earlier this month, Chavon Kamar Trotman, of no fixed place of abode, pleaded guilty to having the illegal substance in his possession on October 1.

He was remanded to prison and returned today for sentencing.

Trotman was offered but refused drug counseling and when a check was made to verify whether he had any previous convictions it was discovered that he was known by two names.

Station Sergeant Neville Reid revealed that Trotman spells his first name with either a C or S, has two different birth dates and also uses the surname Springer.

The magistrate then imposed the eight-month prison sentence, suspended for 12 months. That means that if Trotman is
found guilty of any crime between now and August next year, he will have to serve the time in jail.
