It was Justin Dave Clarke’s contention that he should be sent to the Psychiatric Hospital since he was on drugs, needed medication and had multiple personalities.

“I would like to go to the Psychiatric Hospital,” he told the District “A” Magistrates’ Court on Tuesday. “If I do go to jail, the only thing that will happen is that I gine do the same thing over and over. So I feel I should go to the Psychiatric Hospital.”

But in the same breath, the vagrant said he was drinking “joy juice”, a concoction made by a friend, which was supposed to take him off the medication.

However, any psychiatric help Clarke gets will be at HMP Dodds as he was sentenced to 18 months in prison. (HLE)
