Cedric Isaac will have to pay the court $800 by the end of August or spend two months behind bars.
The St Joseph man appeared before Magistrate Candia George at the Roseau Magistrate Court Tuesday morning and pleaded guilty to the charge of possession of cannabis and possession of cannabis with intent to supply.
According to the fact of the case from police prosecution, on July 8, police went to the home of the defendant in St. Joseph where they met the defendant and issued him with a warrant to search his home. While executing the search at his dwelling place, police allegedly found 45 grams of marijuana.
Before handing down the sentence, Magistrate George cautioned the defendant about the effects of Marijuana.
In handing down the sentence, Magistrate George considered that the defendant pleaded guilty and did not waste the court’s time. The fact that Isaac had no previous convictions also worked in his favor.
