A Christ Church man will spend three months in prison after he pleaded guilty to stealing two bottles of alcohol.
Trevor Antonio Hollingsworth, 47, of Lodge Road, admitted in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court that he entered Popular Discount Ltd on December 10 and stole a $9.35 bottle of white rum and a $15.49 bottle of rum punch.
In the facts presented by Sergeant Neville Reid in the No.1 Criminal Court, presided over by Magistrate Douglas Frederick, security at the Spry Street, St Michael store observed Hollingsworth taking up the mentioned items and placing them in a bag he was carrying.
He was stopped by security as he attempted to leave the store without paying for the mentioned items.
Hollingsworth, who is known to the court and has several convictions, apologized for his actions through his legal counsel.
But that apology was not enough, as the court noted his antecedents, many of which included six-month prison stints.
“It’s the season and I am in the spirit . . . . Three months imprisonment; when you come out, try to reform yourself,” the magistrate told Hollingsworth.
