Emmanuel “Manny” Azille of Cottage walked away a free man ealier on Thursday after he was freed by the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court.
Just over a year ago he was sentenced to eight years in jail and fined $105,000 or in default, an additional year behind bars, after he was arrested and convicted for possession of 12 grams of cocaine.
The appeal court ruled that he had already spent his sentence behind bars.
He was represented by Attorney at law Wayne Norde.
State attorney Clement Joseph and the office of the DPP got high commendations from the judges “for their very good work” in the matter.
