A Pearls man who was brought before the Grenville Magistrate court last Monday on a warrant for failing to pay compensation for a stolen animal, landed at the Richmond Hill Prison on a three-month sentence.
The accused, Norlan Charles, must pay compensation in the amount of twelve hundred dollars in three months time after his release and failing to do so he would go back to jail for three more months.
The accused was found guilty of stealing sometime last year and was ordered to pay compensation to the animal owner in the amount of twelve hundred dollars at a rate of four hundred dollars a month.
However he failed to make any payment and told the court during his appearance last Monday that he was not employed and that his brother would help him make the payments.
The court was not interested in his explanation and instead he was told that he does not seem interested in making any payments, therefore his refusal to obey the court order would land him in jail.
