Bocage man found guilty of trespassing and wounding

Owen Victor of Bocage, Castries was on Wednesday, April 17, 2013 convicted for being seen on a premises and wounding.

According to court records, on Saturday, January 12, 2013 at about 1 am, the virtual complainant, Gaspard Dujon, was in his house when he heard a noise coming from his garage, which was about 20 feet away.

When he went to check, he reportedly saw the defendant attempting to lift his air compressor.  The defendant reportedly ran with Dujon in pursuit. At some point the defendant took a cutlass, which he had in his possession, and struck Dujon with it, wounding him.

After the trial, Magistrate Velon John found Victor guilty for the offence of seen on a premises and wounding. John indicated  that the prosecution had not proven their case for the offence of attempted stealing.

For the offence of seen on premises, he was fined $500 to be paid in 30 days, or in default, three months imprisonment.

For the offence of wounding, he was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment to be suspended for two years.

He was also ordered to pay $1,000 compensation to Dujon in three months or in default spend three months in prison.

  1. "For the offence of wounding, he was sentenced to 18 months imprisonment to be suspended for two years." WHAT DOES THIS MEAN I DON'T UNDERSTAND... I cant believe this guy was let loose. How can we feel safe in that community.

    • An offender who has been given a partially suspended sentence serves some time in prison and then is released into the community. The remaining prison time is suspended.I believe that if he re-offends during those two years, the 18 months prison sentence may be activated.

      • To make it easier ...If he commits any offence and convicted during those two years he will have to serve the 18 months, as well as any sentence passed on the new case.

  2. Velon John is a madman and should be removed. He sentenced a man to 18 months for stealing a court official's mobile phone but gives a suspended sentence for wounding another with a deadly weapon after being caught trespassing.SMH justice is based on who you are in Mr. John's court!!

  3. Yeah! That guy should have been given some serious time. Having a cutlass as standby during theft. We need to extend the prison to house the violent perps.

  5. For wounding, which could have led to murder and stealing, that's the sentence this thief received? Hell, I think I just found my new line of work if that's what the judges are handing out.
