Court: 40-Year-Old Jailed For Stalking Woman

October 25, 2016

Appearing in Magistrates Court, a 40-year-old man — who at the time of the offence was already on parole for killing his own daughter — was sentenced to prison for stalking a woman and intruding on her privacy.

Magistrate Archie Warner sentenced Damon DeRoza to nine months on a charge of stalking and three years on a charge of intruding on the privacy of a woman so as to offend and alarm her.

The two sentences were ordered to run concurrent to each other, but consecutive to any other sentence that may be imposed.

In 1997, DeRoza received a life sentence for killing his young daughter Lynae, and he was released from prison approximately one year ago.

In Court this morning, DeRoza’s mother told the Magistrate that he had been released from prison on parole, and said that DeRoza had been on medication for all that time.

According to the Duty Counsel, who was handling DeRoza’s sentencing, both the Psychiatric and Social Inquiry reports that were ordered for this sentencing date indicated that DeRoza would be better off in a controlled environment.

Magistrate Warner, who confirmed that he, as a Magistrate, could not revoke DeRoza’s parole as it was not a decision made in Magistrate’s Court, handed down his sentence which would result in DeRoza returning to prison, and authorities dealing with the matter relating to DeRoza’s parole for his life sentence.
