The 53-year-old of Calder, was sentenced to three months in prison on Wednesday, after pleading guilty to unlawful possession of six secondary school texts, bearing the stamp on the Girls’ High School (GHS) Book Loan Scheme.

John was found in possession of those books on Tuesday, just days after he was bonded for one year in the sum of $1,000 with an alternative of three months in prison, for a similar offense also involving secondary school texts bearing the stamp of the GHS Book Loan Scheme.

The bond was activated on Wednesday, after John pleaded guilty to the second charge.

On both occasions, John had told the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court he found the books.

Senior Magistrate Rickie Burnett handed down both penalties.
