cannabis-cannabis-genSteven Abraham of Riviere Cyrique will spend the next three months in prison after pleading guilty to possession of cannabis.

Abraham appeared before Magistrate Candia Carrette- George at a Roseau court on May 22.

He was also charged with causing grievous bodily harm to Kirby Pascal on May 21.

Abraham was not required to plea since the offense of grievous bodily harm is an indictable one.

According to the facts presented by Police Prosecutor Corporal David Andrew (Jr.),  police officers went to the home of Abraham to investigate a wounding with intent matter on May 21.

Whilst at the house, police saw a clear plastic bag with what appeared to be cannabis on Abraham’s bed.

When questioned by police he said, “Officer weed that there.”

Andrew objected to bail for Abraham for the charge of grievous bodily harm on the grounds that the offense was a serious one and the complainant, Pascal, is still a patient at the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH).

The trial date for the grievous bodily harm matter is set for July 7th, 2015.
