Magistrate Douglas Frederick imposed the sentence on the 22-year-old Parish Land, Christ Church resident in the No. 1 District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today after reviewing his unfavourable presentencing report.
Lawrence had previously pleaded guilty to assaulting Felicia White on January 9, 2017 occasioning her actual bodily harm.

Just before the sentence was imposed Frederick took a look at the young man’s criminal record which showed he had already amassed several burglary and theft convictions.
He has been on remand for an offence under the Sexual Offences Act which was allegedly committed sometime in August 2018.
