MAGISTRATE Faith McGusty, on Wednesday, September 25, 2019, sentenced a 55-year-old man to two years imprisonment for stealing a bull.
Brian Robinson made his second appearance at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and changed his plea to not guilty.
Particulars of the charge stated that, on August 11, 2019, at Georgetown, he stole a bull valued at $180,000, property of Abdul Azeez.
