A MAN was spared a fine and possible imprisonment by a magistrate yesterday after he pleaded guilty to being found on private property.
Michael Fawkes, 19, appeared before Magistrate Derence Rolle-Davis facing a charge of vagrancy concerning his arrest on Monday, December 19.
It is alleged that he was found on the premises of Old Fort Bay and could not give a satisfactory account for being there.
Fawkes pleaded guilty to the charge, which carries a fine of $50 and/or four months at the Department of Correctional Services.
Magistrate Rolle-Davis, given Fawkes early plea of guilt and relative youth, warned him about trespassing on private property before ultimately discharging him.
Fawkes apologised and said it would not happen again.
