Curfew breaker given 150 hours community work
A curfew breaker who admitted a breach of the lockdown was yesterday sentenced to 150 hours of community service.
Magistrates’ Court ordered Shawn Simmons, 37, to complete the community service order in place of a $3,000 fine.
Simmons, from Sandys, was stopped by police at about 1am on February 16 near the junction of Middle Road and Burnt House Hill in Warwick, when the curfew was 11pm to 5am.
He pleaded guilty on April 15 and explained that he had been recording a commercial at a friend’s home studio.
Simmons added that he left to return home between 12.15am and 12.30am and asked for a period of community service.
Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo adjourned the case until July 20 for an update on Simmons’ progress.
