By BBN Staff: Two weeks ago, nineteen year old student Brandon Smith was arrested and charged for keeping a prohibited firearm and ammunition without gun license.
Police found the firearm and ammunition on Smith when they searched him.
Smith spent 15 days in jail but yesterday, Chief magistrate Ann Marie Smith gave him a suspended sentence of 6 months for both offenses after she heard mitigation pleas from Attorney Ellis Arnold and Diane Finnegan.
Finnegan said that Smith will be enrolled in an apprenticeship program.
