A 35-year-old mason will spend Christmas and the New Year at HMP Dodds.
Shane Omar Grazettes, of Phillip’s Road, St Stephen’s Hill, St Michael, was sentenced to nine months in prison today when he appeared before Magistrate Douglas Frederick.
Grazettes who is known to the law courts pleaded guilty to destroying a shed to an unknown value, belonging to Marva Layne on October 14, as well as resisting and assaulting police constable Pedro Morris in the execution of his duty on the same day.
Police were responding to the report made in relation to a damaged shed when the complainant identified Grazettes. As officer Morris approached the suspect he allegedly stated: “I have nothing to say to you” and then attempted to walk away.
As the officer tried to detain him Grazettes started to struggle and struck the officer in the face. Grazettes was eventually subdued.
“I apologize to the officer. I was under the influence of alcohol. I did not know about his face [but] I had a little spliff on me and I was trying to get away,” Grazettes told the magistrate just before he was sentenced to three months in prison on each offence.
The sentences will run consecutively.
