Forty-eight year Leroy Andrew, a mechanic of Duquesne St. Mark, who operates a mobile garage, was on Monday 4th April sentenced to two years in prison for drivers’ license fraud.
Andrew made his second appearance before Judge Tamara Gill at the St. George’s Magistrate’s Court having been charged with two counts of fraud by false pretence and one count of pretending to be a police officer.
A police operation in November 2015 at the home of Andrew, had led to the confiscation of a number of items including Grenadian and foreign driver’s license examination slips and a quantity of passport-sized photographs.
Andrew had a total of eighteen previous convictions, his last conviction dating back to 2014 when he was sentenced to six months in jail with a fine of $500
The maximum sentence for Andrew’s latest offences is five years, however, attorney- at- law Peter David speaking on Andrew’s behalf asked the judge to be lenient in her sentencing taking into consideration the defendant’s age, time already spent in prison and his willingness to make a change.
