SENTENCE


Dodin, J

 

[1]       I have considered the mitigating factors as related by learned counsel for both Convicts.  Darren Lebon is 19 years old, a Mauritian student.  He is a first offender and he is returning to Mauritius.  He is a young person and he has not wasted the Court’s time with the trial and of course has saved the Court’s time and expense;

[2]       I impose the following sentence;

-Darren Lebon - I impose a sentence of 6 months imprisonment which is suspended for 1 year.

[3]      That means you don’t have to go to Prison.  The only condition is that you do not commit any other similar offence within the 1 year period and that should be in Seychelles not any where else.

[4]        If you disagree you can appeal against the sentence with 30 working days.
