Fisherman jailed for wounding drinking buddy


A 25-year-old Albouystown, Georgetown resident was on Thursday sentenced to two years’ imprisonment for maliciously wounding his drinking partner.

The sentence was handed down by Magistrate Rondel Weever at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts after sufficient evidence was presented to the court against the accused, Kevin Allicock.
