Haitian man fined after he claimed to be someone else

A Haitian national who claimed to be someone else was fined.

Anold Petit-Frere, also known as Dupervil Duverny, was fined $300 or one month in prison on Wednesday after he pleaded guilty to deceit of a public officer.

Chief Magistrate Joyann Ferguson-Pratt took into consideration that Duverny has been in custody since February 12.

Officers from the Criminal Investigation Department arrested Petit-Frere after 8 p.m. on February 12, after they saw him behaving in a suspicious manner at Marsh Harbour, Abaco, the prosecutor Sergeant 3605 Samantha Miah said.

When asked his name, he claimed he was Dupervil Duverny. However, further investigations revealed that his name was really Anold Petit-Frere, the court heard.

Petit-Frere was in the country on a short-term work permit, which has since expired, according to his lawyer Keevon Maynard.

According to Maynard, Petit-Frere was remorseful. He asked the court to be as lenient as possible.

Charlene Jean interpreted the proceedings in Creole.
