A man who cut off his ankle bracelet and went to Florida was yesterday sentenced to three months in prison.
Shoan Jason Johnson, 52, pleaded guilty to causing damage to the monitoring device at his arraignment before Senior Magistrate Carolyn Vogt-Evans.
Johnson was wearing an ankle monitor as a condition of bail for an assault case that stemmed from a domestic dispute.
Officials from Migrafill Security lost track of Johnson on June 28, 2021.
Police arrested Johnson at LPIA when he returned to Nassau on July 15.
Vogt-Evans told Johnson that he would serve an additional three months in prison if he failed to reimburse Migrafill $1,652 to replace the ankle bracelet.
He was represented by Joel Seymour. Inspector Claudette McKenzie-Lewis prosecuted.
