Community service could help man pay off some unpaid fines

A man who owes more than $5,000 in unpaid fines may be able pay some of them off through community service, a court was told.

Kenyade McQueen, 20, was fined almost $2,000 in Magistrates’ Court on Monday after he pleaded guilty to riding an unlicensed and uninsured motorcycle in September last year.

However, the court heard that McQueen, from Hamilton Parish, already owed more than $3,000 from previous fines.

McQueen told senior magistrate Maxanne Anderson that he was unable to pay the full amount, because he was not working full-time.

Ms Anderson asked court staff to write a social inquiry report for McQueen to see if he could pay some of the fines through community service.

She also ordered that McQueen should pay some of the outstanding amount on Monday. The case was adjourned until June 28.
