Nine months jail for breaking into church


A 33-year-old man of Grove, East Bank Demerara and Alberttown, Georgetown, was on Friday sentenced to nine months imprisonment after he was caught red-handed breaking into a church.

Rawle Ramsawak pleaded guilty to the charge before City Magistrate Dylon Bess.

Ramsawak confessed that between November 11 and November 12, 2019, at Waterloo Street, Georgetown he broke and entered the Christ Church, a divine place of worship, with intent to commit a felony.

The court heard that on November 11, the Priest was in the process of securing his church when he heard a door open; he then found Ramsawak who ran away from the scene.

The Police were contacted and they found Ramsawak walking along Waterloo Street.

In a plea for leniency, Ramsawak apologized and told the Magistrate that would not commit such crimes again.

Ramsawak, who is no stranger to the court, was sentenced to 24 months imprisonment for breaking into a church in 2017. He had previously served four months imprisonment for breaking to another church in 2016.
