Men sentenced for loitering on UWI campus

Four men who failed to properly account for their recent presence on the Mona campus were sentenced to 30 days each in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court yesterday.

Senior Resident Magistrate (RM) Judith Pusey who said that she was taking the matter seriously, explained that the men were at a place of learning under questionable circumstance around 12 a.m.

Antonio Smith 40, Dave Jones 30, Felhue and Ferron Johnson, both 29 and 19-year-old, respectively, were charged with loitering and being in a restricted area.

accosted by security

Allegations are that Smith, a taxi driver, was spotted in the vehicle. The other men were on the University of the West Indies campus when they were accosted by security personnel.

The court heard that when the men were quizzed, they said they were going to a student by the name of 'Akeim' at a particular address. However, when checks were made it was revealed that the address houses an abandoned building. The police were called.

A desperate plea from the men's attorney that they did not have any criminal intentions or weapons was not enough for the RM.
