The High Court has placed a St Michael man on two years probation.
The sentence, handed down yesterday, came after LeAndrew Shabar Coward had pleaded guilty, on an earlier occasion, to having a gun and four bullets.
Coward, of Lot 1, #4 Field Place, Bayville was also ordered to reside with his mother for the next six months while he undergoes counselling.
Justice Olson Alleyne also imposed a 7 p.m. until 6 a.m. curfew, which remains in effect place during that period.
The facts of the case were that police were in receipt of certain information when they saw Coward driving a car on June 23, 2012.
After they alerted him, Coward stopped the vehicle, opened his door and fell quickly to the ground. He was seen pushing something under some nearby bushes.
Police then retrieved a gun which had four bullets inside.
Coward has already spent nearly three calendar years on remand.
Crown Counsel Alison Burke represented the Crown while attorney-at-law Andrew Pilgrim QC represented Coward.
