Mickel Charles, a repeat convict who has just completed a six month jail term for house breaking and stealing is back behind bars at the Richmond Hill Prison where he will serve another six months for an offense of a similar nature.
Charles appeared before the Grenville Magistrate’s Court last Monday and pleaded guilty to entering the home of Nicholas Philip at Crochu on December 26, with the intention to steal.
The accused told the court that he was hungry and in search of bread, hence the reason for his illegal entry.
Prosecutor told the court that the accused was searching the home of Mr. Phillip, when a noise alerted the homeowner who caught the intruder in the act.
The accused hails from Marian in St. George’s, but had been residing in Mama Cannes, St. Andrew.
He told the court that he was employed in Pomme Rose plastering a house, but he had not yet been paid when the offense was committed.
Charles was given the opportunity to speak before his sentencing during which he begged the court to exert some leniency on him claiming that he had changed after recently coming from prison.
However his plea for leniency did not win the favour of the judge. Charles was sentenced to a six months jail term some time last year for stealing from a dwelling house in Mama Cannes, cash in the amount of one hundred and five dollars, money which was never recovered.
