Seven years to the day after he was held by police, Jamal Manyatta Gill threw in the towel and pleaded guilty to drug possession when he appeared in the District “A” Magistrates’ Court yesterday.
However, he still maintained he did not know what the tablets were that he had found.
Gill, now 37, who initially had no fixed place of abode but whose address is now White Hill, St Andrew, initially pleaded not guilty to having methylene-dioxymethamphetamine or MDMA, commonly known as ecstasy, on January 25, 2015.
Yesterday when he reappeared in court, he changed his plea and admitted guilt.
“I’m sorry for the offence,” he said in his defence. (HLE)
