SENTENCE

Dodin J

 

[1]       The Convict in this case has pleaded guilty to one count of robbery with violence. He is a first time offender and of course as he has pleaded guilty has saved the Court’s time and expense of a trial. He has indicated that he is prepared to compensate the victim for the loss that was caused by the robbery which is a sum of SR2700 plus $20.

[2]       There is another person also who took part in this offence who has not turned up today.  I will deal with him later. So for the purpose of the 1st Convict I sentence him as follows:

(1) 18 months imprisonment plus a fine of SR2000 which shall be paid on completion of the sentence. Out of this fine SR1400 shall go to the victim.

(2) As compensation the other half will come from the other person if he is convicted.

(3) He is entitled to remission and time spent on remand shall form part of the sentence imposed.

[3]       He has 30 working days to appeal against the sentence.
