Prison sentence for summer gun incident

A seven-year prison sentenced was handed down Thursday (24 November) for a George Town man who had to be tasered several times by police officers who were arresting him on a gun possession charge last summer.

Randy Parchment will turn 36 next week at HMP Northward after the conviction for possession of an unlicensed firearm and possession of ammunition. He was taken into custody in the early morning hours of 4 August 2016 in the car park of Bananas Bar on Eastern Avenue in George Town. Police were asked to respond to reports of a man threatening others with a gun. Upon Mr. Parchment’s arrest, officers found a .38 revolver with six bullets. A search of his home turned up more ammunition. Mr. Parchment told police he was armed because he believed several people had threatened to kill him.

Visiting Justice Dame Linda Dobbs noted Mr. Parchment has spent most of his adult life in prison for eight previous convictions including manslaughter with provocation for a 1999 stabbing death, and that his troubles date back to his first experiences with alcohol and drugs as a teenager. His expressions of remorse played a role in his receiving the minimum sentence of seven years.
