Father of 7 gets 4 years jail for trafficking 34 kilos of marijuana


59-year-old Standley Pyle of Norton and Camp Streets, Georgetown, was jailed for four years and fined $30,000 after pleading guilty to trafficking 34 kilograms of marijuana, when he appeared before Magistrate Judy Latchman earlier today.

Customs Anti Narcotics Unit (CANU) Prosecutor Konyo Sandiford in presenting facts to the court relayed that on September 10, 2017, CANU ranks went to the home of Pyle where they conducted a search which led to the discovery of the illicit substance contained in three cartoon boxes and two barrels.

The father of seven begged for the courts leniency and the Magistrate after considering all mitigating factors imposed the custodial sentence and fine.
