A young Barbadian who does contract work in Canada and goes between that northern country and home, may have to put his planned wedding on hold.
Despite his pleas for a second chance and an opportunity to proceed with his wedding arrangements, 24-year-old Winslow Ricardo Bonnett of no fixed place of abode, heard Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant say: ”remanded for sentencing”.
Bonnett appeared before Cuffy-Sargeant today charged with entering the apartment of Canadian visitor Ethel Marley and her husband on January 13 with the intention to steal.
He is also accused of loitering on the premises of Yellow Bird Hotel on February 3 when it was suspected he was about to commit theft.
According to the facts read by the police prosecutor, Marley, who owns the apartment, complained that she and her husband were awakened by a noise coming from the kitchen.
The court was told the complainant observed the sliding glass door being opened and saw a man whom she could not identify at the time.
However, police investigators were later led to the accused based on finger prints and palm prints taken from the door.
This afternoon when the magistrate asked Bonnett if he had anything to say, he replied “I apologize to you, the owner of the apartment. I would like a chance…I would like to proceed with being married.”
Bonnett, who pleaded guilty to both charges, will now have to wait until March 12 to know his fate.
