Escaped Inmate Caught Boozing

Beer proved to be the Achilles heel for a prison inmate who had escaped prison.

Aleck Jack a nineteen-year-old inmate, was sentenced to four months behind bars when he appeared before a Bulawayo magistrate facing a charge of escaping from lawful custody.

After a full trial, Jack was convicted, and the magistrate handed him a six-month jail term.

Fortunately, Jack will spend four months in jail after the magistrate suspended two months on the condition that he does not commit a similar offence in the next five years.

The magistrate described Jack as a dangerous criminal because he escaped from lawful custody. The magistrate said sentencing him would likely make him reform and deter would-be offenders.

His luck ran out, as he was caught boozing at a drinking spot in Figtree, Matabeleland South province, leading to his arrest and arraignment before te court of law.
