Sentenced: Jason Gansham

Thirty-year-old Jason Gansham, also called ‘Doc’, of Lima, Essequibo Coast, Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) was on Thursday slapped with a two-year sentence for theft.
Gansham was not required to plead to the charge when it was read to him by Magistrate Tamieka Clarke at the Suddie Magistrate’s Court.
Police have said that on Tuesday, May 14, 2024, in Lima, Essequibo Coast, he stole from Jairam Bissessar, a businessman.

Sentenced: Arshaad Kowshell

Following the application of the Administration of Justice Act (AJA), Gansham pleaded guilty to the charge, and was sentenced to two years’ imprisonment.
Meanwhile, 18-year-old Arshaad Kowshell of Reliance Ballfield, Essequibo Coast has also been sentenced to two years’ imprisonment, for stealing a goat last Monday at Anna Regina. The animal reportedly belongs to Clifford Spellen.
The teenager made a virtual appearance at the Anna Regina Magistrate’s Court before Magistrate Clarke, and two witnesses testified in the matter. After the prosecutor had closed its case, a no-case submission was overruled. The defendant gave unsworn testimony, and this resulted in his sentence.
