Isaac who has spent most of his life within the walls of Her Majesty’s Prison was found guilty on Monday, April 14, 2014 by a 12 member juror panel for rape and armed robbery.

The habitual law breaker, who believes that a curse was placed on him ever since he stole money from a Catholic Church when he was a teenager, re-appeared before the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court, at the High Court Building, In Charlestown, Nevis, on Friday, where his sentence was meted out.

Isaac was found guilty of an offense that was committed sometime in July 2012 at Jones Estate in the parish of St. Thomas. It was reported that Isaac broke into the victim’s home with a knife and demanded money from her. Unsatisfied with the sum of money he received, he then decided to have sexual intercourse with the virtual complainant.

The 33 year old was sentenced to 38 years imprisonment. He received 30 years for rape and 8 years for armed robbery. Her Ladyship ordered that both sentences run consecutively.

Just two year ago, in November of 2012, Isaac was sentenced for wounding and armed robbery. In that matter he received two (2), 12 year sentences that were to run concurrently.

Justice Lorraine Williams instructed that Isaac is to complete his 12 year sentence, before he starts to serve his 38 year sentence.

Isaac still has other pending charges against him. He is currently facing charges of escaping lawful custody and possession of firearm and ammunition.
