Prince Cherry of La Clery and Morgan Mitchel of Anse La Raye were on Friday, March 15 fined $50,000 by Magistrate Velon John for possession with intent to supply cannabis.
The two men were off the coast of Saint Lucia near Pigeon Island on March 24, 2012 at about 7:30 p.m. when they were discovered to be in possession of a quantity of cannabis with a street value of $15,000.
Cherry and Mitchel were arrested and charged for being in possession of controlled drug (cannabis) and possession with intent to supply it to another.
After the prosecution closed its case, the defendants changed their not guilty plea to guilty.
They were cautioned, reprimanded and discharged on the charge of possession, but on the charge of possession with intent they were each fined $50,000 to be paid in 90 days, or in default, spend three years at the Bordelais Correctional Facility.
