Two Christ Church men who pleaded guilty before the High Court to firearm and ammunition charges will know their fate on Friday .
And Justice Randall Worrell has made clear that should the No. 2 Supreme Court decide that the imposition of a fine would meet justice in their cases then the two must be ready to repay family members and friends who will be stepping in to help them.
“If the court is going to indicate that this is a fine, whatever fine the court is going to impose, you all are going to have to work to pay this back to your relatives who have decided to assist you all,” Justice Worrell told Adeem Antone Millington, of Ashby Land, Oistins and Dario David Cox, of Lodge Road during a virtual sitting on Wednesday.
“The Court is going to make that a condition so that you all have to feel this because the stupidity of walking about with firearms is something that has to come to an end,” the judge told them. “If somebody is… going to bail you all out all the time, you all are not going to feel it.”
Millington previously admitted to having an unlicensed .45 calibre pistol on April 20, 2019, and six rounds of .45 cartridges.
Cox took responsibility for having an illegal .45 calibre pistol on the same day and possession of 10 rounds of .45 ammunition.
Now convicted, Millington and Cox, who have spent two years on remand awaiting their fate, are represented by attorneys-at-law Harry Husbands and Kaviar Callendar. Crown Counsel Romario Straker is prosecuting.
