Stashing some of his recently murdered brother’s illegal property at his home earned Amir Oladele Blackman a seven-year jail term from the No. 4 Supreme Court.

However, after deductions, he will serve a remaining 884 days in prison for carrying an illegal firearm.

Blackman, 18, of River Land, St Philip, had pleaded guilty, at an earlier Session of the Continuous Sittings, to carrying a Glock 17 pistol without a licence and having 13 rounds of ammunition between May 31 and June 5, 2019.

He was represented by Queen’s Counsel Michael Lashley and attorney Seantelle Parris, while Crown Counsel Romario Straker appeared for the Crown.
