A security guard who circulated nude photos of a woman after she rejected his demand for sex has been fined and given a suspended prison sentence.

The man, Lendon Abraham aka Mitchie, 34, of Rillan Hill, was charged under the Cybercrimes Act, which allows the court to fine and confine offenders.

Abraham pleaded guilty on May 7 at the Kingstown Magistrate’s Court to a charge that between April 1 and April 6, 2024, he used a computer system to send threatening and intimidating statements to the virtual complainant (VC).

Abraham also pleaded guilty to a charge that on April 6, 2024, he transmitted sexually explicit images that included personal identification information of the VC without her consent.

Abraham was remanded in custody until his sentencing, which took place on Thursday, after an adjournment one week earlier.

The court heard the facts of the matter in-camera.

However, the case, essentially, was that Abraham was communicating with the 39-year-old VC who sent him nude photos of herself.

He later demanded that the VC have sex with him. When she refused to, Abraham threatened to circulate the photographs and proceeded to do so, when the woman did not give in to his demand.

During a May 16 hearing in the matter, Senior Magistrate Tammika Da Silva-McKenzie told Abraham that she had to adjourn his sentencing because she had asked the prosecution for submissions on sentencing and had only received them that day

Asked if he had any objections to the adjournment, Abraham, referring to prison, said, “I didn’t want to go back round there.”

The magistrate told him that the advantage of being on remand was that the time would be deducted from his sentence.

“I don’t like it round there,” Abraham reiterated.

“I understand but I believe it is better for all of us if you are around there,” Tammika Da Silva-McKenzie said and adjourned the sentencing.

On Thursday, Tammika Da Silva-McKenzie sentenced Abraham to six months and seven days in prison, suspended for three years.

He must also pay a fine of EC$10,000 and EC$2,500 within a year and by Nov. 22, respectively or spend one year in jail for each default, to run concurrently.   

Abraham has previous convictions for wounding and damage to property.
