Brother Spares Brother From Jail on Gun Charge

Steven Bradley

A Belize City man found himself between a hard place and a rock when a gun was found at the house he is sharing with his brother.  The decision which twenty-four year old Steven Bradley, a resident of Sittee Street, Belize City had to make today saved his brother, twenty-one year old Kadeem Bradley, from going to jail. But it landed him behind bars for an empty point thirty-eight pistol found inside his room by the GSU on September twenty-second 2016.  This morning in the courtroom of Magistrate Carlon Mendoza, Steven took the rap for the gun and pleaded guilty while Kadeem maintained a not guilty plea. Steven told the court that he was holding the gun for a friend and was disappointed with how the situation had turned out since it has brought shame to the family. The court imposed the minimum prison term of five years behind bars for the empty gun. Both brothers became emotional after sentencing and the Magistrate explained that he can be eligible for parole after he has served half of his time for the firearm that was found hidden inside a tennis shoe box.
