Gunman sent to jail for nine years

Stressing that the courts must stamp out the practice of people openly walking around with illegal guns, Justice Laurie-Ann Smith-Bovell jailed a gunman for nine years in the No. 4 Supreme Court yesterday.

However, Kadeem Shamar Moore, of Vauxhall, Christ Church, will serve two years, 325 days after a number of deductions were taken into consideration.

He had pleaded guilty, at an earlier Session of the Continuous Sittings, to having a .380-calibre pistol and five rounds of .380-calibre ammunition on March 1, 2020.

The matter was prosecuted by State Counsel Kevin Forde.

As she noted that neither Moore nor his family had the means to pay a fine, the judge said firearms engendered a sense of fear among citizens and were a source of danger to society. (HLE)
