Seven months ago Dario Arlington Hollingsworth had to be lifted into the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court to face a burglary charge.
And during that appearance he strongly maintained his innocence, questioning, “how a man that can’t walk break into a man’s house?”
However, the 23-year-old not only walked into court today, but he pleaded guilty to the same charge of entering the house of Heather Dawn-Scott as a trespasser on November 2, 2017 and stealing a bag worth $150, US$300 and BDS$100 in cash, two passports worth $250 and Barbados identification cards belonging to Dawn-Scott and Elizabeth Skeete. The cards cost $50 each.
However, Hollingsworth will have to wait until next week to know his fate. That’s when the prosecutor will provide details of the crime, and Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant is expected to sentence him.
In the meantime he will remain at HMP Dodds until June 27.
