48 months jail for Miner who stabbed man


Stabbing-300x171[www.inewsguyana.com] – A Miner has been sentenced to 48 months imprisonment for unlawful wounding by Magistrate Judy Latchman on Tuesday, July 14 after changing his plea to guilty.

Levi Williams of Durban Street, Georgetown, is charged with unlawfully and maliciously wounding Jermaine Sampson on June 17 at Norton Street, Georgetown.

The Court heard that Sampson was stabbed twice, once in the eye and on another part of the body. A year ago Williams had been sentenced to 12 months imprisonment by former Magistrate Geeta Chandan-Edmond after he admitted to stabbing another person with whom he had an argument with.

During this incident he took a knife and dealt the victim several stabs about the face and neck.



  1. This idiotl is a career thug and should have received a more severe sentence so that hopefully he will have the time for reflection and some attitude adjustment. It is clear his MO in resolving conflict is to stab others.

  2. Sentence too short for this kind of violent crime. This is attempted murder and the sentence should be at least ten years with no parole. But wait, Granger might have him released earlier.

    President Hunt, I urge you to inform them that these sentences must be reviewed and violent criminals must be kept behind bars for longer stays.
