A man from Moncriffe in St. Philip was today sentenced to jail for having illegal drugs in his possession.
When 30-year-old Carl Omar Maynard appeared in the District “C” Magistrate’s Court, he pleaded guilty to three drug charges and was ordered to serve four months behind bars.
Maynard had also been charged with trafficking and possession with intent to supply, but was convicted, reprimanded and discharged on the first one with the other being withdrawn.
He is also facing charges of illegal possession of a .32 revolver and illegal possession of eight rounds of ammunition.
However, the accused was not required to plead. He will have to re-appear in court on March 4, next year to answer those firearm-related offences.
Meanwhile, a 23-year-old from the same district also appeared in court today on three drugs charges. Rashad Rommel Belgrave pleaded guilty, as well, to all the counts and was allowed bail in the sum of $1,000 with two sureties.
But Belgrave has to be back in court on Thursday, pending a pre-sentencing report. (EJ)
