Aluko Thomas, 29, was sen-
tenced to 18 months by San
Fernando Second Court Mag-
istrate Rae Roopchan after he
pleaded guilty to possession of
16 grammes of cocaine for the
purpose of trafficking. Thomas,
who lost his leg during a
shootout with police in 2008,
said he was frustrated because
he could not apply for a dis-
ability grant, since he did not
have an identification card.
And when a car crashed into
his house during a police chase
last week, he said the next day
he took $700 from a partner
and bought cocaine to smoke
and sell. Thomas, who has pre-
vious convictions for a range
of offences, including robbery,
ammunition, drugs and gun
possession, begged the magis-
trate to help him out.
"You are not helping society.
By selling drugs you are causing
a real problem," Roopchan said.
He said in his opinion serious
crimes, such as larceny, robbery
and murders, stemmed from
Given the conditions in
prison, Roopchan said he tried
not to send people to jail but
in Thomas' case he had no

around 10.45 am on Saturday
at Sooknanan Street, Marabella,
after the police found cocaine
rocks in a container in his pants
pocket. He told the police:
"Boss, ah now come out of jail,
give me a chance."
Roopchan told Thomas the
18 months sentence was lenient
given his criminal background.

The prosecutor in the matter involving Caribbean
Communications Network (CCN) has filed 22 state-
ments and yesterday assured the six outstanding
statements would be filed before the next adjourned
George Busby issued the assurance when he
appeared before Chief Magistrate Marcia Ayers-
Caesar in the Port-of-Spain Eighth Court yesterday.
He said in addition to the six outstanding statements,
they were yet to decide on whether or not a "particular
piece of evidence was admissible."
However, he assured Chote that all issues would
be determined before the adjourned date of May 28.
CCN, which is the parent company of TV6, was
previously the broadcaster of Ian Alleyne's Crime
Watch programme which is now being broadcast
on CNC3. CCN is facing nine charges which stem
from a video depicting the rape of a 13-year-old
which was allegedly aired three times on TV 6 from
October 24 to 26, 2011.
Three of the charges were laid under Section 32
(2) of the Sexual Offences Act which makes it an
offence to reveal the identity of a rape victim during
a broadcast. The remaining six charges fall under
the Telecommunications Act for alleged breaches of
its licence and concession which was issued by the
Telecommunications Authority of T&T (TATT).
Although Alleyne was convicted and fined $30,000
in relation to three charges under the Sexual Offences
Act, CCN has maintained its not guilty plea in relation
to all nine charges. Alleyne is still before the court
charged with resisting arresting officer ASP Ajith
Persad in the execution of his duties.
He will reappear on June 7 before the senior mag-
istrate to answer that charge for which he was granted
$20,000 own bail.
