A glass maker on Wednesday was given a second chance and placed on a bond to keep the peace for a year by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan at the Georgetown Magistrates’ Courts, after begging for leniency.
Mark Singh, 42, of Lot 150 Regent Street, Georgetown, appeared before Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan to answer to the charge of threatening behaviour towards Sujata Persaud on July 23, 2016 at King Street, Georgetown.
Singh pleaded guilty with explanation to the charge. He told the court he recently came out of jail after spending a year and wished never to go back. He said on the day in question, he got out of jail and returned to the house he and his reputed wife shared, but she had someone else in the house. He further added that he took his clothes and went away, but was later detained by Police ranks.
Singh begged the court for leniency, claiming he would do well with his life and he never wanted to return to prison recalling some gruesome acts that happened to him while serving his time.
Chief Magistrate McLennan told the man that everyone deserved a second chance, which would be given to him on the condition if he breached the bond of peace he would be placed on for a year, he would be sentenced to prison.
