Hesron Marrast jailed for fifteen months

Ninety nine days for the thief one day for the watchman; the words of  Benedict Matthew a farmer who has been suffering at the hands of a thief as he continued to lose thousands of dollars’ worth of crops. He expects this will stop now that the person he suspects as the culprit is behind bars.

Matthew was in court last Monday to witness Hesron Marrast being sentenced to a total of fifteen months behind bars at the Richmond Hill prison after the accused was nabbed following a visit to Matthew’s property, where he had stolen forty pounds of cabbage.

 He was also accused of stealing one hundred and seventy pounds of tomatoes from the same lands but pleaded not guilty to that charge. The accused was also charged with stealing a quantity of ginger from Telfor Charles’ property and pleaded guilty.

 The cabbage and ginger will be returned to the owners as a restitution order while the accused faces a lengthy jail term. The accused according to the prosecutor was picked up on a committal warrant on which he would serve three months in prison for failing to pay seven hundred and fifty dollars to the court  for stealing a copper gourd; an offense for which he was jointly charged with Sheldon Reuben.

 Marrast is serving six months for the theft of the ginger and six months for vagrancy, he is also serving six months for the cabbage heist and six more for vagrancy which will run concurrently but consecutively with the three months, a total of fifteen months.
