Mechanic Sentenced to 12 Months Hard Labour

Keno Smith, a mechanic of a Kingston address, was sentenced on November 9, 2017 in the Corporate Area Parish Court to twelve months hard labor suspended for two years on a charge of attempting to obtain a Driver’s License by Means of False Pretense.

He was originally charged on Wednesday June 28, 2017 by officers of the RPD after he went to the Tax Administration Jamaica’s King Street offices to collect his general Driver’s License. While processing the application it was discovered that the photograph that appeared on the license did not match the person claiming to be Mr. Smith.

After being interviewed in the presence of his attorney he was charged with the offences of Conspiracy to Defraud and Attempting to Obtain a Driver’s License by Means of False Pretences.

Mr. Smith pleaded guilty on Monday September 25, 2017.
