Man sentenced for damaging windshield of car


Magistrate Annette Singh, on Wednesday, sentenced a 37-year-old man to two months in prison on a charge of ‘damage to property’.

Jason Stevens had made an earlier appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court before Magistrate Faith McGusty and denied the charge, when it was first read to him.
Particulars of the charge stated that, on February 8, 2020, at South Road, Georgetown, he damaged a car’s windshield valued at $49, 999, property of Uana Rodriguez.

On the first instance, Stevens’ matter was transferred to Court II. When the matter was called before Magistrate Singh on Wednesday, Stevens changed his plea from not guilty to guilty, stating: “I am living at the court. I am a convict.” Magistrate Singh then sentenced him to two months in prison.
