DONISHA Prendergast, the granddaughter of reggae legend Bob Marley, was on Thursday fined $100 after pleading guilty in the Corporate Area Resident Magistrate's Court to possession of a small quantity of marijuana.

The 26-year-old Prendergast paid the fine and avoided being sent to jail for 10 days.

Prendergast was arrested on November 21 after police officers, who were doing spot-checks along Water Lane in downtown Kingston, searched her car and found three clear plastic bags containing the ganja.

Prendergast had missed her court date on Wednesday and was accompanied to court by her lawyer Diane Jobson.

Based on a request by Jobson, the conviction was not recorded against Prendergast's name.
