For having three firearms and several rounds of ammunition, a St Michael man was given a starting sentence of 10 years by Justice Christopher Birch.
However, after several deductions were made for his good behaviour, early guilty plea and time spent on remand, Rodney Angelus Thomas Greaves will only have to spend three more years in Dodds prison.
The 37-year-old of Church Gap, King Street, St Michael, had pleaded guilty to having two .9 mm firearms and a .45 ACP pistol on April 30, 2020, without a valid permit
He had also admitted to having 79 rounds of ammunition without a valid permit.
When he reappeared in the No. 5A Supreme Court earlier this week, Justice Birch told him that 10 years was an appropriate starting point for the offences.
He was given a one-year discount for his good behaviour, bringing the sentence down to nine years. Greaves was also given a one-third reduction for his early guilty plea, further reducing the sentence to six years.
After the 932 days he has spent on remand were taken into consideration, he was left with a three-year prison sentence,
Greaves was sentenced to 18 months for the ammunition. However, the sentences will run concurrently.
Justice Birch also ordered Greaves to enrol in educational and vocational programmes during his period of incarceration.
State Counsel Kevin Forde appeared on behalf of the State.
