Floyd Green will spend the next two months at the Stock Farm Prison as a consequence of his drug habit.
The Roseau man appeared before Magistrate Candia George at the Roseau Magistrate Court Thursday afternoon where he pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of cocaine.
According to the facts of the matter from police prosecution, on July 12, police was on patrol at the River Bank area, where they met the defendant whom appeared suspicious. The authorities informed the defendant that they would like to search him and proceeded to do so. During the search a Hillsborough Special Cigarette box was found in the crotch of the defendant pants in which he kept the content of the drugs.
“On the ground I just get that,” the defendant told police during investigations.
Green who was not represented by counsel made a plea in mitigation on his own behalf. “Your Honor, I have a new job at a car rental, I would like to pay a fine,’ the defendant indicated to Magistrate George.
In handing down the sentence Magistrate George considered the conviction history of the defendant.
“The fine did not work last time, am not fining you again, I am sending you away for a little while so you can reflect on your bad habits,” Magistrate George told the defendant.
