Man ordered to settle $10,000 fine within six months

A St Michael man has six months to pay the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court an $8,000 balance of a $10,000 fine if he wants to avoid spending time in prison.

This after Ovid Comienskey Alleyne’s family could only afford to pay the court a portion of the outstanding amount.

The 35-year-old had pleaded guilty to possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and cultivation of four and a half pounds of cannabis with an estimated $18,000 street value.

The illicit drug was found in a bowl, plastic wrappings and on a string in different parts of the house, while seedlings and plants up to six feet tall were found under cultivation in his enclosed backyard when police executed a search warrant at his Alleyne’s Belle Road, No. 1, My Lords Hill, St Michael residence.

When Alleyne, who had been on remand since December 9, made his second appearance before Magistrate Douglas Frederick he was questioned about whether his family would help him with the fine. However, Alleyne explained that he had a job and would pay the amount if given a timeline, while a  family member told the court that she only had $2,000 in cash and had to look at other avenues to get the balance.

That amount was immediately paid to the court.

Alleyne is facing a year in prison  if he fails to pay the balance by July.
