Man gets two years for gun possession, also charged with spree of sex assaults


Tribune Staff Reporter


A MAN accused of a spree of sexual assaults in Carmichael earlier this year was sentenced to 24 months in prison after admitting he had a gun in his room.

Magistrate Lennox Coleby sentenced Seantino Rolle, 27, on charges of possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition.

Sean Rolle, 49, Adolice Rolle, 53, and Nessta Petit-Frere were Seantino’s co-accused.

Rolle was arrested on May 16 after the police found a black Smith & Wesson 40mm pistol in his room on Lincoln Blvd. The seized weapon had seven unfired rounds of ammunition.

After Rolle reversed his earlier position and pleaded guilty to the charge, the firearm charges against his three co-accused were withdrawn.

Rolle was sentenced to 24 months at the Bahamas Department of Correctional Services for the offence.

During his initial arraignment, Rolle was also charged in relation to a string of sexual assaults that allegedly happened in May. He was charged with attempted rape, three counts of rape and two counts of forcible taking or detention with intent to have unlawful sexual intercourse.
