Man Pleads Guilty To Wrecking Roads

The man charged with damaging 8,000 ft. of asphalt on John F. Kennedy Drive decided to change his plea to guilty yesterday.
On July 18th, Thomas Alexander Rigby pleaded not guilty to the charge of damage, but now he apparently had a change of heart.

According to reports, sometime between July 6th and 12th, the man intentionally damaged the newly paved road, causing $1,211,000 worth of damage.

Yesterday the 45-year-old told the court he did it because he was not paid for assisting with the road works, as he is an ex-employee.

Acting Chief Magistrate Joyann Pratt-Ferguson referred the matter to the Supreme Court for a stiffer penalty, because when he was first arraigned on July 18th, he was only ordered a $150,000 fine.

The man also apologized to Bahamians for his actions.
He will be remanded at Her Majesty’s Prisons until his court hearing.
