Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant today imposed a six-month suspended sentence on 50-year-old Junior Johnson after he admitted to having cocaine in his possession.
Johnson, of no fixed place of abode, was caught with the illegal narcotic after police pulled him over on his bicycle for committing two traffic offences. He had no bell or number plate.
As a result, Johnson, who says he is gainfully employed, was sent shopping to buy a bell and to register the bicycle and must present the items, along with proof of purchase, when he returns before Cuffy-Sargeant on November 16.
In the meantime, if he lands himself in trouble between now and May next year, he will have to serve six months in jail.
