Magistrate Douglas Frederick imposed a $5,000 fine on a St Michael man whom he said had graduated into a cannabis “farmer”.
Shane O’Neal Mayers of Odessa McClean Drive was today found guilty of the July 6, 2013 offences of possession, possession with intent to supply, trafficking and cultivation of $10,000 worth of cannabis.
“You were given chances in the past, but you are not learning. You started with a little, now you have graduated to growing; looks like you are a farmer,” Frederick told Mayers as he asked him whether he wanted to spend more time in prison.
“Everybody does make mistakes,” the man replied. “Twenty eight days were enough, Sir. I don’t want any more.”
Mayers has six months to pay the fine or he will spend six months in jail.
