Magistrate Momodou Jallow of Bundung Magistrates’ Court, last Wednesday convicted one Sanna Sanneh to a fine of D500 in default to serve six months impressments after he was found guilty on a charge of stealing.
Sanna was said to have stolen a carpet belonging to one Mariama Bahoum at Tallinding on 10th November this year. The police prosecutor, Soffie Bobb told the court that the carpet was recovered.
In his plea in mitigation, Sanneh appealed to the court to tamper justice with mercy on him, saying he is the breadwinner of the family and putting him in jail will make his family to suffer.
He said he does not want his mother to hear about the case as that may lead to her collapse as a high blood patient.
