‘Lock him up’ for good
HE NEEDS to be locked up until it is time to bury him.
That is the recommendation of Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions Donna Babb-Agard during her submissions in the manslaughter case of Garnett Levere Brome.
The 72-year old fisherman, of Six Men’s, St Peter, pleaded guilty to killing former lover Caroline Roberta Forde, 49, on August 19, 2013.
Babb-Agard outlined the prosecution’s argument ahead of sentencing when the case continued in the No. 2 Supreme Court before Justice Michelle Weekes yesterday. She said age was not a mitigating factor.
“He wasn’t 21 when he committed this offence; he was 69. So my learned friend is now inviting this court that at the age of 71, saying we are to extend so much mercy to the now convicted man, and that it is supposed to have an impact on the sentence that you impose on him. I’m asking you to flip that,” she said. (TKS)
