Normally, Harrison College would be a venue where students would be busily engaged in learning.
But last Friday night, other activities were taking place when a security officer at the school heard “noises” coming from inside a classroom. When he went to investigate, he found two men in the same classroom hiding.
When security personnel questioned the men as to what they were doing there, they said they were there “to have sex”.
Police were called and Ramon Akeem Quarless, 23, of Harmony Hall, Hindsbury Road and David Delisle Harewood, 38, of Jordan Lane, both in St Michael, were subsequently charged with being on the school premises on October 30 and being unable to give a satisfactory reason for being there.
Both men pleaded guilty when they went before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the District ‘A’ Magistrates Court
No. 2 on Saturday.
When the magistrate asked the convicted men if they had anything to say, Quarless told the court that what the prosecutor said “is true”.
Harewood, a first-time offender, was placed on a bond to keep the peace for one year. If he breaches that, he will have to pay $2 000 forthwith or spend four months in jail.
Quarless, a repeat offender, was sentenced to four months in prison.
