A presentencing report has been ordered into the life of a 19-year-old, accused of committing several criminal offences.
Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant made the order after Christopher Anderson Shepherd, of Spruce Street, St Michael, pleaded guilty to possession, possession with intent to supply and possession with intent to traffic $85 worth of cannabis on September 4.
The illicit drug, which was concealed in a capsule bottle, was discovered in Shepherd’s pocket when police, acting on information, executed a search warrant at his home.
However, he was not required to plead to the indictable charge of unlawfully wounding Paul Dear on July 15 with intent to maim, disfigure or disable him or to cause him serious bodily harm.
With no objection from the prosecutor, Shepherd was released on $10,000 bail with two sureties.
He has however been warned to stay away from Dear.
The accused must also report to Central Police Station every Monday and Thursday before noon with valid identification.
He returns to the District ‘A’ Magistrate’s Court on November 16.
