On August 25, 2015, Ricky Antio pleaded guilty before the Waigani National Court to receiving K1,500 stolen cash monies.
He was sentenced by Justice Panuel Mogish to 11 years’ imprisonment with hard labour this week.
Antio spent 11 months in remand at Bomana before he was released on National Court bail on Sept 26, 2014.
The court deducted those 11 months spent in remand from the head sentence of 11 years, leaving Antio with 10 years, one month.
Justice Mogish further ordered 3 years to be suspended from that remaining 10 years – one month jail time.
