The hands of justice can be swift. Take the case of the St Catherine man who robbed a female prosecutor at the Spanish Town courthouse last month. He will be sentenced on November 23, just two months after committing the act.  


Twenty-two-year-old Christopher Burton, who is of a Spanish Town address, pleaded guilty to a charge of simple larceny two weeks ago. 


Burton was remanded until sentencing by Resident Magistrate Tara Reid-Carr.


Allegations are that on September 22, the complainant, who is a Deputy Director of Public Prosecutions, went to work at the Spanish Town courthouse when a man walked up and accosted the prosecutor and then demanded money.


The man, who had on a mask, was given $100.


He ran from the compound.


A report was made to the police and following an investigation, Burton was picked up by the police on October 5 after he was seen begging at the courthouse.
