He remained standing and I used it to slightly jam him out of the circle. He backed out of the circle completely and starting speaking in Latin”.Justice Birnie Stephenson Brooks who sentenced Webb on Friday, described the act as “bizarre”. According to Justice Brooks, a psychiatric report indicates that Webb does not suffer from any mental disorder, while the social inquiry report states that he is a person who did a stint in the United States Army, keeps to himself, and describes himself as having “high self esteem”.He told his probation officer that he was previously accused of murder but he was later acquitted. Justice Brooks stated during her sentence that he is “not a ready candidate for rehabilitation”.“The aggravating circumstances vastly outweigh the mitigating circumstances,” she said before sentencing him.Webb turned and smiled to reporters in court when he heard the sentence.His attorney, Peter Alleyne told reporters that he was “not surprised with the sentence as the judge had to send a clear message”.On exiting the court smiling, Web had a few words for the media practitioners gathered to get a quick snap shot of him.“See you guys in appeals court,” he said.Dominica Vibes News Share Share Sharecenter_img 73 Views   2 comments Tweet Sharing is caring!last_img read more
