CITY Magistrate Faith McGusty on Wednesday sentenced a man to 24 months imprisonment after he pleaded guilty to breaking and entering the National School of Dance Building and carting off several items.Mahase Sarjou confessed to two counts of break and enter and larceny. The court heard that he broke into the building of the National School of Dance at Thomas Lands, Kingston, between November 28 and November 29, 2016 and carted off several items valued $432,900.
He also confessed to breaking into the building a second time between November 30 and December 1, 2016 and stealing over $76,795 in items.
“I done get ketch; let me go sit down and do my time,” the man said, as he begged the magistrate to sentence him. However, he added “nothing too big, nothing too small….just give me reasonable time.”
Police Prosecutor, Corporal Seon Blackman, explained that upon being caught on December 3, the accused confessed to the crime and even assisted the police in recovering some of the items.
Magistrate McGusty, after considering Sarjou’s early guilty plea and the fact that he did not waste the court’s time, sentenced him to 24 months imprisonment on each charge.The sentences will run concurrently.
