Man Convicted on Theft Charge




Magistrate Momodou SM Jallow of the Bundung Magistrates’ Court Monday convicted and sentenced one Ebrima Suwareh to a two-year jail term after he was found guilty by the court on a charge of theft.

Ebrima was charged with stealing a smart phone valued at D6000 and a simple phone valued at D400 from one Jatou Sumareh on the 11th October 2016 at Kerr Serign.

He had pleaded to the court to temper justice with mercy on him, saying he is a first time offender but the prosecutor denied his appeal and said Ebrima was once prosecuted and sentenced. He said he could provide the records to the court to prove the convict wrong.
