Laldeo Jagdeo

“My erection gon since meh turn 55 years,” were the words of a 61-year-old man who was sentenced to 15 years behind bars for sodimising a 15-year-old boy in 2019.

Laldeo Jagdeo, called ‘Basha’ of Devonshire Castle, Essequibo Coast, had his sentence imposed by Justice Jo-Ann Barlow in the Suddie High Court.

The Court heard that the 61-year-old man committed the offences between September and October 2019.

As a result, he was sentenced to 13 years on the first count, 13 years on the second count, and 15 years on the third count.

But the sentences will run concurrently, and Jagdeo will only serve 15 years in prison. The Judge also ordered that he undergoes counselling for sex offenders while in prison.
