St Hill must pay $500 for breeding mosquitoes
FUNERAL DIRECTOR MICHAEL ST HILL was yesterday fined $500 in two months, or he will spend a month in jail, for knowingly allowing the breeding of mosquitoes on the premises of his Bank Hall Main Road, St Michael business.
Having pleaded not guilty to the October 8, 2014 charge of “knowingly permitting to remain on his premises stagnant water and a number of containers found to be breeding mosquitoes,” St Hill was found guilty yesterday following months of trial in the District “A” Criminal Court 2.
His attorney Errol Niles yesterday urged the court to be as lenient as possible, and not to record a conviction against the veteran funeral director.
But Acting Magistrate Alliston Seale said he would definitely record a conviction. (Coastline Communication)
