The luck of two juvenile offenders ran out last Friday when they were remanded at the Dominica State Prison until their trial for the unlawful entry and intent to steal from the home of Senior Counsel Anthony Astaphan in St. Aroment on January 6, 2010.
The two boys, who appeared to be below the age of 16, were accompanied by a parent/guardian each before Magistrate Gloria Augustus on Friday.
Though the details of the matter were not revealed, Magistrate Augustus made it clear that it was not the first time the pair was in trouble with the law. She indicated that she was fed up with the young offenders’ behaviour after she had done all she could to help them.
She spoke of her last encounter with one of the boys during the Christmas season where she cautioned and gave money to him, and made him vow that he would not get into any more trouble with the law.
The younger of the boys pleaded guilty while the older teen said that he was not guilty. Their trial was adjourned for March 10, 2010.
