Sentences of two ‘excessive’

Justice Carlisle Greaves’ sentences of the man who trained a high-powered weapon on police, and his accomplice, the getaway driver, are excessive, their attorneys argued yesterday.

However, the state’s counsel countered that the judge did not take any extraneous matters into consideration and his sentence of the two were justified.

These were the arguments when the appeal brought by Bryan O’Neal Small and Jason Omar Morgan began in the Court of Appeal yesterday.

Small, a spray painter, of Martin’s Road, The Pine, and Morgan, a self-employed vendor, of Waterford Housing Area, both in St Michael, were convicted for having articles for use in connection with theft – two pairs of gloves, two ski masks and a torch – while not being at their places of abode on October 11, 2013.
