Man loses appeal against 20-year sentence

A man who pleaded guilty to killing a teenage boy has failed to have his 20-year sentence reduced.

Charlton Pierre was charged in 2018 with the murder of 16-year-old Stephano Newbold in Nassau Village.

Pierre received the sentence after he pleaded guilty to manslaughter after entering into a plea agreement.

However, Pierre appealed the sentence.

In dismissing the appeal, Court of Appeal President Sir Michael Barnett said, “The only basis upon which this court can interfere with the sentence is if we can be shown that the sentence is unduly harsh. There is no basis for us believing that this sentence is unduly harsh. It was entered into pursuant to a plea agreement and, therefore, there is no merit whatsoever in this appeal.”
