Photo credit: inetres.comThirty- three year old Levi Gregoire of Grand Bay who was arrested on Friday last week, had four charges of possession of Cannabis, firearm and ammunition read to him at the Magistrate’s Court in Roseau this morning.The Defendant pleaded guilty to all the charges which were filed by Constable Maximea A of the Commonwealth of Dominica Police Force.According to the facts presented to the Court by the Prosecutor; “a search warrant was executed on the Defendant’s premises on Friday 12th August, 2011 at about 5:30pm. While conducting the search, Constable Maximea A opened a draw of a table close to the bed in one of the bedrooms and found three rounds of ammunition. Constable Maximea A questioned the Defendant about the fruits of his search to which the Defendant replied, ‘Officer while I was cleaning inside Bubbles I get that, I just bring it there” he was also asked whether he possessed a firearms license to which he replied ‘no officer.’ Constable Maximea A then informed him that he needed a license in order to possess the ammunition to which he again replied, ‘officer I tell you is by Bubbles I get that and bring it there.’ While searching the kitchen Constable Maximea also found a clear plastic bag which contained substances which appeared to be Cannabis. The Defendant was arrested and taken to the Police Headquarters in Roseau and the contents of the plastic placed in an evidence bag and sent to the lab for testing. An analysis report confirmed that the contents of the clear plastic bag was in fact Cannabis and weighed 368 grams. Both the Cannabis and Analysis Report were tendered into evidence and marked “AN1”, the three bags containing the ammunition were also tendered into evidence and marked “AN2’, and the search warrant marked “AN3.”Defense Counsel Wayne Norde in making a plea in mitigation for his client asked the Court to be lenient as this is his first offence.“The Defendant is a young man in his prime; he is an electrician and farmer by profession. He is the father of three children, he pleaded not guilty, he has been very cooperative and Constable Maximea A can support that. He’s not resisting the facts, he admitted and explained the circumstances in which he came upon them. He didn’t intend to harm anyone and found it at Bubbles and inadvertently brought it home. Unfortunately he found himself in possession of a spent shell and I think that he has learnt a lesson. We are asking the Court that he not be given a custodial sentence as this is his first offence; he is a virgin in relation to his record. He did not waste the Court’s time and we are asking the Court to be lenient with him.During sentencing Magistrate Evelina Baptiste informed the Defendant that she had considered the factors in his favour being that he is a first time offender and that he did not waste the Court’s time and those not in his favour; the prevalence of these types of offenses within the society and the amount of Cannabis and live rounds of ammunition.Levi Gregoire was ordered to pay $12, 750.00 on or before the 31st day of March, 2012 or in default he could serve twenty nine months in prison.His uncle Clevelle Gregoire and the sister of his common law wife Mandy St. Luce served as his sureties on his behalf. As part of his bail conditions, he is to report every Wednesday between the hours of 7am and 7pm at the Grand Bay Police Station and surrender his passport and all travel documents to the police immediately.Meantime Nerissa Lavenir, who was also arrested on Friday and granted bail over the weekend was informed by Magistrate Baptiste that the matters have been dismissed for lack of prosecution.Dominica Vibes News Sharing is caring!

Andre Ayew backs under-pressure Swansea boss Garry Monk

first_img Monk has come under increasing pressure amid Swansea’s slide down the Barclays Premier League in the last two months and there were few signs of improvement as Bournemouth dominated for long periods at the Liberty Stadium. Club chairman Huw Jenkins said in his programme notes that everyone at the club should keep their own counsel to “stop adding fuel to a fire ready to ignite at any time”, but it is a fact of football life that results will dictate whether Monk is able to ride this current storm. Swansea have now won only once in 10 games and lie four places and five points above Bournemouth, who fill the final relegation spot. But top scorer Ayew, who rescued Swansea from 2-0 down with his sixth goal of the season and by winning a contentious penalty for Jonjo Shelvey to level before half-time, said: “He (Monk) shows us a lot of support and confidence. “We were trying to give it back to him on the pitch. He’s a great manager, we know what he did last season. “Everything’s going to get back into shape and we just need some time. “You need that in football when things are difficult. “We believe we have great players, a great squad, a great manager and everything will be OK. “We just need to keep working hard and don’t give up.” Monk, however, will receive little comfort when he scans Swansea pre-Christmas fixture list. Next weekend’s trip to Jurgen Klopp’s fast-reviving Liverpool is followed by a visit from league leaders Leicester and their goal machine Jamie Vardy. After that there is an away date at Manchester City before in-form West Ham travel to the Liberty Stadium. “When you’re in a club like Swansea that wants to grow and you don’t get the results everybody gets the pressure,” said Ghana forward Ayew. “That’s normal, but we just want to stay focused on the field and not look at what’s happening outside. “We just concentrate on the pitch and listen to what the coach has to tell us about the tactics and what he wants to do. That’s what’s important.” Swansea had handed out 19,000 clappers for fans to pump up the volume and lift a side who finished eighth last season with a record points tally. B ut boos were the only noise heard from home supporters when Bournemouth led through Joshua King’s first goal for the club and Dan Gosling inside 26 minutes. Eddie Howe’s side could not hold on for a first win in eight but defender Steve Cook feels the Cherries are heading in the right direction. “The last two and a half games we have played, we have grown as a team and, because of that, I can only see us moving on and getting stronger,” Cook said. “I think we would have taken a point had you have offered it before the game but I thought we were terrific. “Unfortunately we didn’t get the win, but it’s certainly coming and we are growing in confidence as a team. “Eventually we will get that bit of luck that gets us over the line.” Andre Ayew has labelled Garry Monk a “great manager” as the embattled Swansea boss continues to feel the heat following a disappointing 2-2 home draw with Bournemouth.

We have to bat like Virat, Pujara in second innings: Pat Cummins

first_imgMelbourne: Australia pacer Pat Cummins asked his fellow teammates to bat like Virat Kohli and Cheteshwar Pujara after they were skittled out for a paltry 151 in the first innings of the third Test here.”It was obviously not ideal. We turned up thinking of a good first innings score and be right in the game. We wanted to take this result away from them. This is a young batting group and they are working hard. They are trying their best, but it is just one of those things. Today it didn’t come off,” Cummins told reporters.Pujara and Kohli had stitched together 170 runs to propel India to 443/7 declared.”What we saw from India’s first innings, we saw temperament of Pujara and Virat and how they pace their innings. They absorb pressure because on this kind of wicket, it is hard to score runs.”You have to face a lot of balls to get big scores and it is probably one of those wickets where you do the hard work early. Keep absorbing pressure and score later, but evidently it did not work for us today,” he added.Cummins bowled a fiery spell of 4/10 to help the hosts reduce India to 54/5 in the second essay but they still trail the visitors by 346 runs after conceding a massive first innings lead of 292 runs.”It’s always going to be hard missing two of your best players. We’ve known for nine months (that Steve Smith and David Warner won’t be available). Others have to stand up. It probably highlights the class they’ve had in previous years but we’ve got to find a way,” Cummins said.”Everyone here is good enough. They’ve done it at the level below, all of them are the best (Sheffield) Shield players and most of them have done it for Australia before. Wicket feels pretty good still, so everyone feels like in the second innings they can face more balls and get going,” he added.Cummins said they wanted to make things tough for India in the second dig.

Jim Boeheim won’t have Dajuan Coleman on a ‘minutes limit’

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Jim Boeheim isn’t going to treat Dajuan Coleman’s left knee like a prized pitcher’s elbow, even if a lot of Syracuse’s potential hinges on Coleman’s health.In Syracuse’s 97-58 exhibition win over Le Moyne on Monday, Coleman played 23 minutes but all nine scholarship players ran for at least 10. It’s conceivable that he’ll need to play more than that with the Orange lacking depth at center. Boeheim has said that Coleman will sit because of the fatigue from not playing in two years, but that he won’t be on any kind of “minutes limit” due to his recovered knee.“It’s either go or not. It’s either he’s going to go and be all right or he’s going to go and not be all right,” Boeheim said at Atlantic Coast Conference Basketball Media Day on Oct. 28. “It has nothing to do with minutes. He could play two minutes a game and get hurt, or he could play the whole game and not get hurt.”Boeheim’s logic is simple: If Coleman is scrimmaging in practice at full speed, he shouldn’t be held back in games. Coleman echoed his coach at Syracuse’s annual media day on Oct. 16, saying he never wants to come out and is ready to play a full load of minutes. While he thought about his knee, almost obsessively, for the better part of the last two years, Coleman is now able to focus on playing rather than “being careful.”He’s gone to the floor in practice and gotten up just fine. The last thing Coleman wants, even with his injury past, is to be babied by the coaching staff.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“You have to understand, I’ve been playing outside my whole life. Falling, scraping my knee. This is, this not really anything I care about falling on the ground in here,” Coleman said, pointing to the team’s practice courts in the Carmelo K. Anthony Center. “I don’t even worry about my knee. I’m fine, I’m fine. I don’t really think about it.”Heading into the regular season, the Orange will need Coleman to shoulder a minutes load that even slightly resembles Rakeem Christmas’ from a season ago.According to, Christmas played 85.1 percent of possible minutes on the season and 92.1 in conference play, which was the highest mark of any ACC big man. Minutes percentage factors in overtime games and games played, and Christmas saw a lower percentage of possible playing time than just five ACC players.That can’t be expected from Coleman — because of the injuries and his bigger build — but Christmas’ minutes masked SU’s lack of center depth last season. Backup center Chinonso Obokoh doesn’t seem quite ready to contribute, as he failed to grab a rebound and committed three fouls in 11 minutes against a Le Moyne team that had no player taller than 6 feet 7 inches. To spell Coleman, the Orange has Obokoh or a three-forward lineup that features 6-foot-8, 210-pound Tyler Lydon at center.Boeheim said Monday that the offense, that’s shifting to the perimeter as is, won’t put too much on Coleman’s plate in the early going. Yet it still seems that Syracuse is not just better off with him on the court, but also noticeably shorthanded when he’s off it. He’s the team’s biggest body, knows the center spot in the zone better than any of his teammates and provides the most tangible low-post scoring threat.And as of now, Boeheim isn’t going to let the history of Coleman’s left knee dictate his playing time.“He needs rest. He’ll be out. He’ll be rested, but it won’t be because of (his injuries),” Boeheim said. “It’s just like if he were a guard and he were back healthy he’d play the whole game probably. He’d play the whole game.” Comments Published on November 3, 2015 at 6:32 pm Contact Jesse: | @dougherty_jessecenter_img Related Stories Malachi Richardson leads SU freshmen trio in exhibition win over Le MoyneSyracuse hoists 32 3-pointers in 97-58 win over Le Moyne in exhibitionPoll: Grade Syracuse’s performance against Le Moyne and pick the player of the game7-foot-2 Paschal Chukwu will help Syracuse basketball, even in his redshirt yearlast_img read more


Reds Rocked as Bournemouth Wins Seven-goal Thriller

first_imgShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Senegal international Sadio Mane and Belgian striker Divock Origi, starting a league game for the first time this season, established a 2-0 lead for the visitors midway through the first half.Callum Wilson halved the deficit from a penalty 11 minutes into the second half, but within seven minutes, Emre Can’s fine effort from the edge of the penalty area restored the two-goal cushion.It was snatched away, however, in stunning fashion with three Bournemouth goals in the last 20 minutes.Substitute Ryan Fraser and defender Steve Cook scored in the space of three minutes to bring Bournemouth level and in added time Chelsea loanee Ake grabbed a stunning winner after a mistake from Liverpool keeper Loris Karius.It was Liverpool’s first defeat in the last 12 league games and left them third in the Premier League, four points behind leaders Chelsea.Elsewhere yesterday, Leighton Baines scored a dramatic late penalty to add to Jose Mourinho’s problems as Manchester United were held to a 1-1 draw at Everton.Former Everton star Marouane Fellaini had only been on the field for two minutes as a United substitute when he tripped Idrissa Gueye unnecessarily and Baines made no mistake with a clinically-taken 89th minute penalty.Zlatan Ibrahimovic had produced the only moment of quality in a disappointing first half, when he gave United the lead three minutes before the break, although the goal was as much a result of a mistake by Maarten Stekelenburg.The Everton goalkeeper rushed out of his area, for no obvious reason, to try and beat Ibrahimovic to a hopeful through ball by Anthony Martial.And Ibrahimovic, a former teammate of Stekelenburg with Ajax, cleverly lobbed the ball over the keeper and towards the open goal, the ball bouncing against the crossbar and the right-hand post before referee Michael Oliver judged it had crossed the line with the aid of goal-line technology.United  is now 13 points behind leaders Chelsea as its poor run extended to one win in their last eight league games.Everton manager Ronald Koeman would have been angered that such an obvious individual error cost his team so dearly and would also have had cause for complaint over Oliver’s handling of an earlier appalling challenge from Marcos Rojo.The United defender launched a flying, two-footed challenge on Gueye, but Oliver somehow judged it was only worthy of a yellow, rather than the obvious red it deserved.Those were the only noteworthy incidents of the first period as United looked to improve on an indifferent run of two wins from their previous 10 league games.
