Computer thief sentenced to 18 months' hard labour


Soniel Anderson, the 18-year-old man who was caught on camera breaking into a computer laboratory at the Spalding High School in Clarendon on September 3 last year, was sentenced to 18 months' hard labour when he appeared in the Mandeville Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday for sentencing.

Anderson, who was granted bail on November 14 by Resident Magistrate Desrene Alleyne when his father pleaded with the judge to release him from the Mandeville lock-up where he spent two months, pleaded guilty when he reappeared in court.

While he was on bail, he allegedly broke into a teacher's house at Contrivance in Manchester, and stole a laptop. That incident took place on December 9. He pleaded not guilty and is to reappear in court in August to answer to housebreaking charge.
