Convict sentenced to three months for breaking &  entering  and stealing

Wendell Thomas, no stranger to the Richmond Hill Prison who has 45 previous convictions was sentenced to three months each on two criminal charges.  

 

 The accused pleaded guilty to house breaking and stealing for which he was sentenced to three months. He will also serve three months for breaking open Archibald Distribution and stealing thirty cases of Busta. The sentences will run concurrently.

 During his trial Thomas pleaded with the Magistrate not to send him back to prison claiming that he has just started a permanent job with a contractor, he has been working continuously for the past two months he said, and they are building numerous houses including one at Fort Judy. “ I could pay a fine he said, I am a changed man and have stopped doing those thing,” he told the Court.

The Magistrate inquired how his employer could be contacted. The accused said that he has a number for his employer’s brother, which he gave to the Court. The Court attempted to make contact but the number was not answered but went straight to voice mail. 

However after listening to his continuous pleas to have mercy on him and to exert a fine, the Magistrate informed the accused, that with a record of forty-five convictions, she was left with no choice but for him to serve three months in prison on each of the charges.

According to management of the burglarized outlet, three months jail was not enough, he should be made to spend a longer period.
