Webster Edmund sentenced to two years and four months in prison on gun related and drug charges
37 year old, Webster Edmund of Layou was sentenced to two years and four months in prison after he pleaded guilty to gun related and drug charges at the St. Joseph Magistrate Court on Thursday April 07th, 2011.
Only four out of the ten charges that were brought against Edmund were heard at the St. Joseph Magistrate’s Court yesterday since the remaining six charges are indictable matters, which are scheduled to be held at the Roseau High Court.
The four charges which were dealt with were unlawful possession of 67 grams of marijuana, possession of marijuana with intent to supply, possession of a firearm, and possession of ammunition.
Edmund allegedly committed those offenses while allegedly holding a teenage girl, also from the community of Layou, in captive for 40 days.
Before the sentence was handed down, defense attorney Peter Alleyne had asked the court to be lenient, considering the fact that his client has been cooperating with police and did not waste the court’s time as he pleaded guilty.
Edmund first appeared at the Roseau Magistrate’s Court on Friday April 01st 2011, three days after he and the missing teen was discovered.
