Court: Man Sentenced To 30 Months In Prison

April 25, 2017

Appearing in Magistrates Court, a 40-year-old man was sentenced to thirty months in prison for burglary and using dishonestly obtained credit cards to acquire goods.

Ernest Smith was handed down a thirty month prison sentence as a result of his two convictions, following a guilty plea, of burglary and using credit cards obtained from the burglary to dishonestly acquire goods.

Mr Smith had earlier appeared in Plea Court in March, which resulted in pre-sentencing report being ordered.

Citing Mr Smith’s criminal record, the Crown Counsel recommended, for each of the two charges, a period of incarceration between 24 and 36 months but with the sentences running concurrently.

The Magistrate ordered thirty months incarceration on each charge, to run concurrently, with at least fifteen months to be served before Smith could be considered for parole. The sentence was to take time already served, about one month, into consideration.
