A 28-year-old man will be spending his birth anniversary in prison, having been sentenced by Principal Magistrate Faith McGusty.
Roylex Williams of Eteringbang appeared at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Court and pleaded guilty to the charge which stated that, on November 8, 2019, at John Street Georgetown, he broke and entered the building of William Bob, with intent to commit a felony.
According to facts presented by Police Prosecutor Annalisa Brummel, on the day in question, about 10:00 hours, the caretaker of the said building was standing in front of the premises when he saw the defendant walking past.
A few moments later he went inside where he noticed several louvres missing from a window. He then entered the house and found the defendant hiding in the toilet. The police was contacted and Williams was later arrested and charged.
Williams told the court that he wanted passage to go home and he entered the house hoping to find money but, to his surprise, the owner was at home.
Magistrate McGusty, after listening to the statements, sentenced Williams, who will be celebrating his birthday in December, to nine months in prison.
