A MAN who admitted to breaking into a house and stealing a rugby jersey has been given 14 days in remand to prepare for his mitigation.

Asaeli Vakaliwaliwa was remanded and produced in the Suva Magistrates Court yesterday.

Vakaliwaliwa admitted to entering a home in Valelevu in Nasinu in May last year.

The court heard that people in the house were woken up and upon searching, Vakaliwaliwa was spotted on the road.

The court heard that Vakaliwaliwa was later arrested and charged.

He was brought to court after he failed to appear for the case.

Vakaliwaliwa was told that he had disrespected the court by not turning up.

He was told that the court had convicted him of theft and he was to mitigate. The court said apart from that Vakaliwaliwa showed no respect for other's property.

The case will be called again on January 14.
