A 29-year-old man who was unable to compensate his victim has been sentenced to nine months in prison.
Jamal Ahmal Skeete, of Bedford Lane, Greenfield, Roebuck Street, St Michael, had previously pleaded guilty to damaging a car window belonging to Ivan Roachford on February 14 without lawful authority or reasonable excuse.
Skeete needed to compensate Roachford $300 for the damage.
However, when he reappeared before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant yesterday he was unable to pay the sum and was sent off to jail.
However, his three months and 11 days on remand will be taken into consideration.
