The three men who were last Friday found guilty in the robbery of Land Court Judge Nicola Pierre and her husband Mohamed Chan were today each sentenced to 16 years in prison, by Magistrate Zamilla Ally-Seepaul.
Dameion Millington, Nicholas Narine and Warren McKenzie had been found guilty of two counts of robbery under arms and two counts of felonious wounding committed on Justice Pierre and her husband. They were jailed for four years on each charge and the magistrate ordered that the sentences run consecutively, taking into consideration that the men used guns, violence and had stolen cash and articles of high value from the home.
Narine, McKenzie and Millington, before their sentencing, begged the magistrate for mercy, claiming that they are innocent of the crime.
Magistrate Ally-Seepaul read the sentence before Special Prosecutor Nigel Hughes and Magistrate Alex Moore who was there on behalf of Justice Pierre and family. Defence attorney Adrian Thompson was absent.
Family members of the convicts left the court in tears, voicing concerns over the “harsh” sentences.
