Inmate gets six years for drug trafficking in prison

vlcsnap-2013-07-18-18h41m19s126A Prison inmate was today sentenced to six years imprisonment and slapped with two huge $10,000 fines after he pleaded guilty to two counts of drug trafficking inside the Belize Kolbe Foundation.   He is 20-year-old Trevor Jones, an inmate at Kolbe Foundation.   This evening, Jones appeared before the Senior Magistrate, Sharon Frazer where he wasted no time and pleaded guilty to two counts of drug trafficking. Earlier today, a Prison Officer, Eric made the discovery after searching Jones’s Tennis shoes and came up with two separate parcels of marijuana, one in each of the soles of this shoe.   When he pleaded guilty, in mitigation, he asked the Magistrate to please take into consideration, the fact that he did not waste the court’s time since he immediately pleaded guilty and all he asked of her was to allow any additional jail time to run concurrently.  Jones got what he asked for when he was sentenced to 2- 3 years jail term along with two $10,000 fines which he must pay by October 31, 2013. In default of payments, he will spend 3 years on each counts.  This is an additional six years for the two counts but the Senior Magistrate ordered that the fines and jail term run concurrently so he will only serve six years instead of twelve.
