Convicted thief Kimien Chescilia Keno Leacock snatched a four-year prison term in the District ‘A’ Magistrates’ Court today.
On Tuesday the 35-year-old, of no fixed place of abode, pleaded guilty to 14 of 17 charges before Magistrate Kristie Cuffy-Sargeant after declaring among other things that, “I ain’t come here to waste no time.”
However, when he reappeared before the Bridgetown magistrate today he was sentenced on ten offences after it was revealed that four of the charges were indictable and would have to be tried in the High Court.
The known thief was sentenced to two years in prison for entering the house of Terry Richards as a trespasser and stealing a laptop, bicycle, drill and power saw worth $2 800 between July 27 and 28.
Another two years were imposed for burglarising the Bulldog Bar and stealing $1 647 in items including $920 cash, the property of Whitney Weekes. That sentence will run consecutively.
He received two-year sentences on the other eight offences but those will be served concurrently. Those are, that during the same period he entered the home of Petrona Rollins and stole three pairs of earrings and a chain belonging to the homeowner and a pair of shoes belonging to Kerry Rollins for a total value of $1300.
He also entered Lisa Atherley’s house and took a chain, three shirts, and a gym bag worth $400 and belonging to Sanjay Thomas. He also damaged a motorcar belonging to Steve Oxley and a door belonging to Krystle Howell.
On July 29 he burgalarised Russell Caddle’s home of 12 tins of sardines, six drinks and a cellular phone totaling $151 and also the home of Michael Webb where he made away with $172.50 worth of items including a knife and sheath. Leacock also entered the home of Ulpian Brade and stole a number for food items valued at $55.
He was convicted, reprimanded and discharged for being in possession of a knife on Combermere Street, a public place without a reasonable excuse or lawful authority.
For unlawfully and maliciously wounding and assaulting Wendell Jones with intent to rob him; unlawfully and maliciously wounding Sandrene Greenidge-Jones and assaulting Joni Roye causing actual bodily harm on July 26 he will reappear in court on September 3 as those charges are indictable.
Leacock will also get his day in court in the District ‘B’ jurisdiction for the July 27 charges that he allegedly assaulted Amos Job causing actual bodily harm and robbed him of $250 in cash. He also faces a charge of damaging a motor vehicle belonging to Clorita Job.
As Magistrate Cuffy-Sargeant was handing down Leacock’s sentence it was revealed that he had other pending charges before her.
“I want to plead guilty on everything I have there in front of you. I don’t want to come back in this court. You already give me four years, I will just take the rest,” Leacock boldly told the magistrate.
He then enter his pleas and was sentenced to six months at Her Majesty’s Dodds prison – to run concurrently with the other sentences – for damaging three windows belonging to Kentucky Fried Chicken Barbados Limited, assaulting and resisting Sergeant Rudy Pilgrim as well as assaulting Police Constables Michelle Hamblin, Graeme Gooding and Dario Sargeant.
Those offences were committed on December 24, 2018.
