    First-time offender to face jail if he doesn't pay up

    A first-time offender who pleaded guilty to possession of cannabis could spend three months in jail if he does not pay $500 by September 30, 2009.

    Portsmouth resident Mark Sango appeared before a Roseau magistrate today after being charged for the possession of seven grams of cannabis at his residence on August 12, 2009.

    According to the facts presented by Prosecutor Levi Maximea, drug squad officials obtained and executed a search warrant for Sango’s home on the said date. At about 5:10 p.m. while approaching his home, Sango was seen outside smoking what appeared to be a cannabis cigarette.

    After introducing himself, one officer seized the roach and asked the defendant what it was, he replied: “Officer a little weed I was just smoking.”

    He then informed Sango of the warrant that he had to search his home and asked him if he had anymore drugs inside. Sango said, “I have some more inside.”

    According to the prosecutor a quantity of cannabis in a clear plastic was found on the counter of a small grocery shop which is part of the home.

    Sango was then arrested.

    In a mitigating plea lawyer David Bruney asked the magistrate not to impose a custodial sentence. He said that the defendant was a first-time offender who had pleaded guilty and not wasted the court’s time.

    He also added that the defendant was able to pay a fine since he owns a small shop enterprise.

    After pleading guilty to the possession of three grams of cannabis, a St. Joseph man was ordered to pay a fine of $300 by September 30, 2009 or face two months in prison.

    Uroy Vidal, who appeared before a Roseau magistrate today was apprehended by drug squad officials in St. Joseph on August 11, 2009.

    According to the facts of the case presented by Officer Levi Maximea, Constable E. Fountain and other members of the drug squad were on mobile patrol when they saw the defendant in the company of a lady and other men.

    He attempted to run when the vehicle came to a stop, but was caught by Constable Fountain who found a clear plastic bag in his right hand containing the quantity of cannabis.

    When questioned, Vidal said that it was only a small amount of weed. He was searched further but nothing else was found.

    The defendant was then informed of his offense and arrested. He then stated, “Officer you again! A little weed I had there. Give me a break officer.”

    In a mitigating plea Vidal said that if he was charged a fine he would be able to pay for it. Adding, “I have a girlfriend that pregnant and still have another child...I still have another thing paying in court for an accident I had.”

    “That officer have a plan for me,” Vidal said.

    A Roseau man has been granted self bailed of $500 after pleading not guilty to wondering a city street without a substantial reason.

    ################ Augustine was charged with vagrancy after being caught wandering River Street Roseau, on August 11, 2009

    The defendant, who appeared before a Roseau magistrate this morning, is expected to show up in court on October 1, 2009 for trial in the matter. If he fails to appear he will be liable to pay the bail sum.

    Before setting bail the magistrate asked Augustine whether he could guarantee his attendance in his upcoming trial. He replied: “In Jesus name I will come back!”

    A condition of his bail is that he report every Monday to the Roseau police station between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m.
