A 25-year-old man who had been on remand at HMP Dodds since January this year could be home in time for the New Year.
Magistrate Douglas Frederick sentenced Tevin Gregory Dwayne Jack, of No.3 Whitehall, St Michael, to three more months in prison for his crimes.
For the last nine months Jack had been maintaining his innocence on charges of entering the house of Fiona Parker as a trespasser on October 24, 2017 and stealing an iPad, two iPods, a speaker, a laptop, a watch, a cellular phone, a ring, a bag and a pair of headphones totalling $9,460; entering the home of Emmanuel Bernardin on November 18, 2017 and stealing a $600 television and two cellular phones worth $750, as well as entering the home of Clement Faria on December 14, 2017 and stealing four rings, two chains and a watch totalling $1,800 and loitering on the premises of Helen James during that same time.
When he appeared before Magistrate Frederick yesterday he changed his plea to that of guilty on all the charges.
“I was influenced by bad company and found myself in a bad situation,” Jack said in his defence.
The magistrate then took into consideration the nine months he had already spent on remand and sentenced him to an additional three months.
