ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Jefferson Joseph, who police allege was in the company of another when he was stopped by a traffic officer and found to be in possession of a loaded firearm and was subsequently slapped with other charges including drug possession, has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Mr Joseph appeared in the Magistrate’s Court today, November 20, 2013 for his sentencing after previously pleading guilty to all the charges, which included possession of an unlicensed firearm (one Luger 9mm pistol) with an obliterated serial number, possession of explosives (9 rounds of 9mm ammunition and possession of cocaine.

The court handed Mr Joseph 18 months imprisonment for possession of an unlicenced firearm, 2 months for possession of explosives, 7 months for possession of cannabis, and 30 months for possession of cocaine.

The sentences are to run concurrently, which means Joseph is only likely to spend 30 months in prison.

    30 months is a kiss on the cheek. I don't see how this will deter him, or anyone else, from doing the same thing again.

    His appearance is rough looking, knowing he had a date with the courts. His attorney didn't remind him to show up looking neat??
