Man Sentenced To 6 Years, Jeep Confiscated

March 15, 2014

Appearing in Supreme Court yesterday [Mar 14] a 52 year old man was sentenced to 6 years in prison for stealing, with the Court also ordering his jeep — purchased with stolen money — be forfeited.

Xavier Trace Douglas was sentenced to six years in prison for stealing $70,000 from a couple of seniors in September of 2012. Douglas was also ordered to make restitution by forfeiting a Jeep Patriot for which he had paid $45,000 by using some of the stolen money.

In handing down the sentence, Justice Carlyle Greaves said that, “Douglas was not a Robin Hood who stole to assist a damsel in distress.” The Justice said, “he is a con-man who stole to buy a young love.”

Crown Prosecutor Nicole Smith told Justice Greaves that Douglas had talked the bank into giving him access to $70,000 from the couple’s joint account. Douglas had then used $45,000 from the proceeds to buy a second-hand Jeep Patriot.

Douglas had later withdrawn $13,000 in cash, given $8,000 of this to a younger woman with whom he was seeking a relationship so that she could settle her rent arrears, and used the cash balance to insure the Jeep and equip it with some items. Other funds had been used for other purposes.

Douglas was  first arrested by Police in November 2012, and formally charged in Magistrates Court in July 2013 with his case being sent to the Supreme Court, and convicted in Supreme Court in 2014.

The Prosecutor had recommended a sentence of six years, while lawyer Peter Farge asked for a six month sentence, arguing that Douglas was an older man obsessed with a younger woman and that this was a “crime of the heart.” This prompted Justice Greaves to ask if this meant that Douglas was a “Sugar Daddy”.

Noting that Douglas had a previous offence of a similar nature for which he had been imprisoned, Justice Greaves set sentence at six years, ordered restitution, and ruled that the Jeep Patriot, currently held in Police custody, was to be forfeited and sold to make restitution. .

    What is more disturbing about this than anything is that he was able to get the bank to do this. Heads need to roll. (SMH)…………I’m here shaking mine.

  6. Terrier says:

    What kind of bank gives access to your account to somebody else by being ‘talked into it’?
    Whoever gave access should also be held accountable.
    Does anybody know which bank it was?
