4 years jail for 28-Y-0 found guilty of robbery, assault


Jail-Bars-and-Cuffs[www.inewsguyana.com] – Twenty – eight – year old Irshad Bacchus, accused of robbery under arms and assault causing grievous bodily harm, has been sentenced to four years in prison after he was found guilty of the offenses by Magistrate Judy Latchman.

The court heard that on March 6, 2015 at Albouystown, Georgetown being in company of others and being armed with a knife, he robbed Anton Nauth of one Jialing motorcycle, CG 2550 valued $200,000.

It was also noted that on the same day, at Albouystown about 3:00 hrs, he stabbed Nauth. He had pleaded not guilty to the offenses and was found guilty.




  1. Lutchman remanded a visibly immature and underweight teenager to prison TWICE for showing Jagdeo’s motorcade the finger. Is there any such offence in the books? More recently she sentenced two UG students to community service for armed robbery. Now this light sentence for robbery under arms and stabbing. Lutchman is either one mixed up lady or she is outright daft. This is one for the Judicial Service Commission.

  2. Four years jail for such serious offence? He should be put away for longer. But the rate at which criminals are being sent to jail once convicted in addition with the escalating criminality, there would be no more room for them.
