Senior Magistrate Tamia N. Richards found Morris Huggins guilty during his appearance from Her Majesty’s Prison via Zoom on Monday, July 6, 2020.
“In this case, there is evidence of damage to a washing machine; the windshield was slashed. The defendant pushed the washer deliberately and caused the damage,” Richards said.
“Mr Huggins, the court has found you guilty for the offences of criminal damage of the washing machine and the car. Beyond a reasonable doubt, you are accordingly convicted," she declared.
In addressing the eight-year-old matter, Richards said the defendant had a part to play in the delay.
“Previous to Irmaria, and the Coronavirus, the delay is on the part of Mr Huggins. We literally had to send the police to Virgin Gorda for him to come to court,” she stated.
She also ruled that he will remain in custody pending his sentencing on July 28, 2020.
Lawyer Michael Maduro represented Mr Huggins during the proceedings.
