Contone gets time to compose next song
POPULAR CALYPSO SINGER CONTONE could not sing his way out of court yesterday like he did on the previous occasion.
Instead, he left the District “A” Magistrates’ Court bound for Her Majesty’s Prisons Dodds to contemplate the lyrics of his next song.
Derrick Anderson Brathwaite, alias Contone, 41, who has no fixed address, was remanded until February 8 after pleading guilty to theft.
He was charged with entering Frances Alexander’s home as a trespasser and stealing a camera, laptop, earring and necklace set, a penknife, stainless steel opener, one LG cellphone and charger, a Samsung cellphone and charger, a Motorola cellphone and charger, a handbag, cosmetic bag, charger cable, silver bracelet, gold ring and a silver ring. The items were worth $4 183. (TKS)
