The son of former Prime Minister, Sam Hinds, appeared before Magistrate Annette Singh on Friday, October 23, where he was sentenced and fined $10,000 for the abusive behaviour charge.

The 33 – year – old miner was found guilty of unlawful wounding of his sister – in – law, Tenza Lane on February 06 by former Magistrate Geeta Chandan – Edmond.

He was scheduled to be sentenced by the very Magistrate on February 20 but on that same day, Chandan – Edmond was dismissed by the Judicial Service Commission (JSC).

The matter has been tied up in legal battles since until sentencing today. Hinds Jr, of lot 83 Duke Street, Kingston, Georgetown, had accused his teenage sister – in – law of stealing his phone.

  1. The system in guyana may have been alot different if people were calling on the P PP TO ACT EVERY TIME SOMETHING WENT WRONG WITH THE JUSTICE SYSTEM OR ANY OTHER ISSUES FAVING GUYANESE. BUT DONT LET MY COMMENT STOP YOU IT IS THE RIGHT THINF TO DO .I JOPE THIS WOULD BE THE TREND NO MATTER WHICH PARTY IS IN POWER. KEEP THE PRESSURE ON

  2. I’m of the view that this young man WILL spend some jail time for his GUILTY conviction – his lawyer is just stretching out the agony!

  3. Another display of the RICH justice and POOR man justtwice, the poor cant pull this kind of bullshit in any court in GT, pardon him like everyone else, is just another sequel of the movie,,,,,NO BIG TING, after all is GT.

  4. This a**hole thinks he is above the law. He should get at least 2 years. I’m sure he won’t be so tough in jail. He’ll be somebody’s b*tch.

  5. Two months jail for all of that plus bail when his case is being appealed.Come on Guyana is too slack and shameful.Compare his actions to someone having some weed in their pocket which I’m not saying is good.But check and see how long they will go to jail.I’m still waiting to see the actions the APNU coalition will take to make the justice system an actual just system.
