A 42-year-old man with no fixed place of abode was sentenced to three months in jail after committing crimes while on a court-imposed bond.
On March 1, after pleading guilty to an assault charge, Terrence Sandor Bowen was warned that he had to keep the peace and be of good behaviour for six months if he wanted to avoid spending three months in prison.
Despite that order, Bowen returned before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant in the No. 2 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today on similar charges, which he pleaded guilty to, triggering the prison sentence.
He confessed to unlawfully assaulting Sandra Thorne yesterday, occasioning her actual bodily harm, as well as using the threatening words, “I gine murder you. I gine wait for when you’re not around and I gine burn down your house” towards Eldica Walcott.
After outlining the facts in court, the police prosecutor informed the magistrate that Bowen had breached a bond.
While he has started his three-month prison term for that breach, Bowen will have to return to court on June 20 to be sentenced for the latest offences. The complainants in both matters are also expected to appear in court on that date.
