A 26-year-old man, who pleaded guilty to two burglary offences, will know his fate on Friday.
Jamal Rohan Kellman, of Dash Gap, Bank Hall, St Michael, appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick yesterday and was remanded to HMP Dodds after he admitted to entering the Happy Rooster Bar and Grill as a trespasser between July 11th and 12th and stealing $500 belonging to Denise Lewis.
He also admitted to entering the Trinity Academy between July 16 and 18 with intent to commit theft.
Prosecutor Station Sergeant Samuel Hinds disclosed that the two establishments were secured but the complainants returned to find them broken into.
“It [Trinity Academy] was broken into already when I broke in, but yeah, I went in,” said Kellman, who is known to the court.
His sentencing for the offences was halted when the prosecutor revealed that he had outstanding fines to pay to the court.
However, Kellman tried to convince the court that the monies had been paid by family member at the District ‘F’ Magistrate’s Court.
Still, the magistrate informed him that the necessary checks would first have to be made and the receipts submitted.
“I was hooked on drugs, cocaine. I have a lil baby and I don’t want to spend no time in prison,” Kellman said before he was
remanded to the St Philip penal institution until August 31.
