Paradise Man Receives Six Strokes

Who says Magistrate Nevelyn John does not order flogging, a court attendant at the Grenville Magistrate Court last Monday questioned as Shabba Richardson of Paradise St Andrew was ordered to receive six strokes forthwith at the Grenville Police Station. He was also ordered to pay compensation and given a suspended sentence 

The convict called on the magistrate to not send him back to prison, as the prison he said, is not doing anything for him.

“Give me up to five years bond and make me pay compensation”, he told the court, “because Magistrate St Louis bonded me some time ago and I stayed out of trouble but when I go to jail I go back doing the same thing again on my release”.

Listening and considering his pleas Magistrate John did not give him a custodial sentence but should he default on two of the sentences she gave him it would still land him behind bars. 

Richardson appeared before the Grenville Magistrate Court last Monday and pleaded guilty to vagrancy but not guilty to predial larceny in the form of stealing a sack containing thirty pounds of sweet potatoes valued at sixty dollars from a shed on the property of a Paradise St Andrew farmer, Paul Jones.

Richardson denied stealing the potatoes but told the court that while he had entered Mr Jones property, he was only using it as a shortcut. However after evidence was given against him by an eyewitness who saw him on Mr Jones property with the bag and gave an accurate description of the clothes he was wearing, he was found guilty on evidence.

 He would pay compensation in the amount of sixty dollars in one week or in default serve one month in prison. He was also given a suspended sentence, which states that should he commit any offence within the next year, he automatically goes to prison for one year. After exiting the court Shabba hid his face in shame as he descended the court steps under police escort. He was then taken to the Grenville Police Station to receive his strokes.
