Farmer Selvin Kingsley Maynard who was discovered growing illegal herb at his residence has been placed on a bond for the next six months.
If the 56-year-old first-time offender from Workhall, St Philip finds himself in trouble with the law during that time, he will spend a year in prison. However, no conviction will be recorded against him if he successfully serves out the bond imposed by Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant.
The sentence was handed down yesterday after Maynard pleaded guilty to possession, possession with intent to supply, having a traffickable quantity and cultivation of cannabis. The offences were committed on April 14 in the District ‘C’ jurisdiction.
“I guilty over everything. I guilty, I can’t say not guilty because it is my place,” Maynard told the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court.
He added: “This is the first time ma’am. I does keep from the court ma’am but the people run in pun me.”
