Dominica’s reigning Calypso king, Dennison “Dice” Joseph, pleaded guilty to marijuana possession in a Roseau court on Friday morning.
Dice was arrested in 2009 but had initially pleaded not guilty.
However, he has now taken full responsibility and has changed his plea.
Court reports indicate that the police had gone to the house of the entertainer and had found 190 grams of the illegal drug.
He was fined $1,500 to be paid by August or in default spend three months in jail.
The court took into consideration his ‘guilty plea’ and what he ‘does socially’ before sentencing.
Dice’s lawyer, David Bruney, also begged the court to be lenient by not imposing a custodial sentence on him.
Inspector Claude Weekes prosecuted on behalf of the State.
