Magistrate Douglas Frederick has remanded Calypsonian Contone to the Psychiatric Hospital until April 3.
Contone, whose real name is Derrick Anderson Anthony Brathwaite, had spent three months on remand at HMP Dodds. He was accused of entering the home of Frances Alexander and stealing a number of items valued at over four thousand dollars.
The ‘My Car Brek Down’ singer asked the court to send him to the Psychiatric Hospital or Verdun so he could get help for his drug problems.
After he is released from rehab Contone will make up for lost time and begin recording for the 2017 Crop Over season.
