Man admits offences almost two years after being charged

A man was yesterday sent to the DUI court after he admitted several traffic offences from almost two years ago.

Javon Weeks, 36, pleaded guilty in Magistrates’ Court to drink driving and failure to stop for police, as well as dangerous driving and refusal to take a breath test.

The police evidence was not read out, but the court heard that the incident happened on June 2, 2019, in Warwick.

Weeks, from Pembroke, was charged with the offences on July 4, 2019.

He at first denied the charges, but switched to a guilty plea yesterday after he was called to a virtual court session to schedule a trial date.

Magistrate Maxanne Anderson referred him to the DUI court sitting tomorrow and released him on $500 bail.

She also ordered Weeks to stay off the roads until further notice.
