Michael Arnold guilty of robbery and wounding

27-year-old Michael Arnold  was found guilty for robbery and wounding before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser. He was spared from jail time but was still fined two thousand dollars and slapped with a suspended sentence of one year

27-year-old Michael Arnold  was found guilty for robbery and wounding before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser. He was spared from jail time but was still fined two thousand dollars and slapped with a suspended sentence of one year. The court case stems from an incident in 2016 when Arnold robbed his neighbor, 58-year-old Maria Pou in broad daylight. The 58-year-old businesswoman had just collected five hundred dollars in rent from a tenant and as soon as she got it, it was snatched away by Arnold. For the robbery, Chief Magistrate, Fraser imposed a non-custodial sentence of a fine of $2,000 plus a $5.00 cost of court fine of which he was ordered to pay by April 30; in default, 3 years imprisonment. For the wounding of Pou, Chief Magistrate, Fraser imposed a suspended sentence of 1-year imprisonment.
