From drug lord to law-abiding citizen
HE WAS REGARDED as the kingpin of drug lords, but when ex-convict Dennis “Sheriff” Maynard exited the gates of Her Majesty’s Prison Dodds last Monday, he vowed it would be for the last time.
After serving 15 (calendar) years and three months of a 25-year jail term, he made an oath to remain focused on keeping a clean slate and abiding by the law.
His comments came in a candid interview with the SATURDAY SUN hours after his release.
Reconnecting with friends at Cheryl’s Hideaway in Roach Village, Market Hill, St George, the man once known among police ranks as one of Barbados’ biggest drug kingpins said he had done his sentence and was hoping that society would give him a second chance.
Maynard said that during his prison term programmes conducted by Corey Layne and Father Clement Paul, as well as a craft course taught by a Miss McClean, helped him to focus, “really understand” his life and believe that it was never too late for change. (SDB Media)
