Buckley Hauled Off to Jail for Old Weed Possession Fines

Stephen Buckley

Stephen Buckley came to public life when he was shot in the head by the police and he subsequently settled with the government part of a compensation package. But tonight, Buckley is behind bars for old fines of three hundred and sixty dollars for two convictions for weed possession. This morning, Buckley, who is a resident of George Street, was dragged into court to answer to his third charge for Possession of a Control Drug, but the amount was so miniscule when placed on the scale, it could not be read. Buckley was on Taylor’s Alley when he was busted. When he appeared before Senior Magistrate Sharon Fraser, he pleaded guilty and threw himself to the mercy of the court since he had two previous convictions for drug offenses.  Buckley told the court that since he was shot to the head he smokes weed to calm him down. But the senior magistrate told him that the court has showed enough mercy and that he must settle his old fines before he can go home. After being convicted, Buckley began asking for help to pay what he owes the court saying he will be getting additional money for the shooting to his head.
