In Magistrates Court this morning [Sept 20], 33-year-old Dimitri Robinson pleaded guilty to using threatening words and throwing four bottles at Jeff Sousa who operates Sousa’s Landscaping.
The Prosecutor told the Senior Magistrate that Mr Robinson had been seeking work as a landscaper but that Mr Sousa had not re-employed him. Mr Robinson was said to have become irate, shouting and throwing the bottles at Mr Sousa, and he also admitted shouting “I’m going to continue stealing from you” to Mr Sousa.
This occurred around 4:30pm on 9th May 2012, at Sousa’s Landscaping which is at the junction of Camp Hill Road and Middle Road in Warwick. The business is operated by Mr Sousa, who is the OBA Candidate for Warwick West.
The Prosecutor told the Court that Mr Robinson had a long record and had a well-known problem with alcohol abuse. The Prosecutor said that Mr Robinson had many prior convictions but none similar to this particular one.
Assisting Mr Robinson, Duty Counsel Susan Moore-Williams said that Mr Robinson admitted alcohol abuse and she asked that he be given help. The Senior Magistrate said that he had already received plenty of help.
Senior Magistrate Archie Warner ordered a BARC report and a Social Inquiry Report, ordered Mr Robinson to return to Court on 31st October, and granted him bail of $2,000 with one surety.
