Jasper Evan Babb is now a free man.
After being on remand on ammunition charges for more than two years, the Josey Hill, St Lucy resident was Monday sentenced to time served.
He had pleaded guilty to having 11 rounds of ammunition in his possession without a valid licence on April 17, 2015.
On that day, police acting on information executed a search warrant at a shop in Josey Hill. During the search, part of a Glock pistol was found with a bullet, along with ten other rounds of ammunition which were found in a mug.
Babb told police during their investigations that he had found the piece of gun and bullet and kept them, while a man gave him the other rounds of ammunition to hold.
His attorney, Jaydene Thomas, had previously told the No. 5 Supreme Court presided over by Madam Justice Michelle Weekes that her client was remorseful for his crime and had pleaded guilty at the earliest possible time.
She submitted that his time served at HMP Dodds – 785 days – was adequate punishment.
The prosecutor in the case, Crown Counsel Oliver Thomas, also believed that time served would suffice in this case.
After reviewing the facts and taking into consideration the period on remand, Justice Weekes told Babb he was free to go.
